Grow through the love of Jesus
Welcome to St. Ambrose Roman Catholic Primary School. This website is designed to give you an insight into our school family, our values, our aims and our achievements. It will help you to make one of the most important decisions you will ever have to make. I hope it will help you to decide that St. Ambrose is the best school for your child. I hope that you find the information contained within these pages useful, but it is no replacement for first-hand experience. Therefore, you are warmly encouraged to visit our school and see us in action.
St. Ambrose School was opened in 1969 to serve a wide catchment area covering Bramhall, Cheadle Hulme, Davenport, Edgeley and Adswood. It is a Voluntary Aided Catholic Primary School and as such our primary role is to serve the Catholic community of St. Ambrose Parish and parts of St. Vincent's, Bramhall and Our Lady's, Edgeley. However, there are places available for children who are not from Catholic families and applications for these are welcomed. Since September 1996 we have been able to offer part time Nursery education in addition to the full primary age range. It is a privilege to see our children grow and mature during their time with us.
Our school life is based on Christian Values. We recognise and respond to the needs of each child: their academic needs and also the development of the whole child as an individual. We develop happy, fulfilled, well-educated and confident children in a caring, disciplined environment with our Faith as the focus of our actions. We expect, encourage and achieve excellence in the range of activities the school undertakes.
Education is a partnership between home, school and parish in which we seek and encourage the participation of parents in the learning process and in the life of the school. Parents are welcome partners in the education of their child and in the development of our school family.
We are happy to provide an opportunity for new children to visit the school before joining our community. St. Ambrose offers a partnership in the development of excellence for all our children. We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our school family.
