Information about the school

St. William of Perth Catholic Primary School is situated approximately one mile south of the City of Rochester, Rochester Castle and Cathedral and is in the Parish of St. John Fisher. As a church school, we place a strong emphasis on creating an ethos based on the gospel values, whilst still maintaining recognition of the need to reflect the variety of religious traditions and diversity of our society. Developing positive spiritual and moral values underpins our pastoral day-to-day work. One of our greatest assets is the caring, family atmosphere, which we create through knowing each child individually and being aware of their different needs.

We believe our children deserve the very best. Within the school mission statement it says that the aims of the school are “to nourish the growth of all its members as persons illuminated by the light of Christ”. Our staff work as a team to support learners to reach their potential within a stimulating learning environment and a rich curriculum while the pupils are polite, happy and very enthusiastic. We will continually strive for excellence and give all children the confidence to achieve their true potential.

We have recently celebrated an outstanding Section 48 Religious Education Inspection (February 2023) where the inspectors commented that "Pupils behave impeccably both in lessons and around the school" and that "Pastoral support is exceptional".
