Welcome to WCPSD - Lead school 'St. Patrick's Catholic Primary School'

Wigan Catholic Primary School Direct (lead by Saint Patrick's Catholic Primary School) is a large partnership of twenty-three Catholic primary schools spread across the Wigan Local Authority. WCPSD is made up of a range of developing, successful and outstanding primary schools with varying contexts, all of which have a shared common goal of training high quality teachers, with a vision for excellence.

Working in partnership with Liverpool Hope University we are able to develop direct training that will have the academic and theoretical underpinning to allow trainees to become outstanding practitioners within the field of education.

We are seeking individuals who demonstrate and are able to apply the skills of organisation, flexibility, reflection, evaluation and action to all aspects of the course and their career. Enthusiastic individuals who are able to communicate effectively with pupils, colleagues and parents on a range of levels are essential to our partnership.

The School Direct programme offers an outstanding opportunity for our schools to recruit graduates of the highest calibre with the commitment to working in Catholic education and become the Catholic teachers and school leaders of the future.

School Direct gives us the chance to select and train our own outstanding teachers of the future.
