Welcome to Christ the King Catholic Primary School

childrens art work

Welcome to our website! We are a large, happy school situated in the ‘Wavertree Garden Suburb’.  Our school building is sixty years old this year and we find that a lot of our parents were pupils here also!  We are proud of our reputation within the community, as a school with a strong Catholic ethos, providing good education and equipping our children with confidence and a positive outlook to make a difference in the world . OFSTED in December 2010 commented that, ‘There is a strong sense of purpose in the school as the staff team work effectively together to  continue to improve outcomes for pupils.’

We have many links with local organisations and charities, have a strong and successful sports tradition and many after school clubs run by our tireless teachers and teaching assistants.  We work alongside the parish of Christ the King and Our Lady to be a witness to the teaching of Jesus Christ in Liverpool. Our Religious Education Inspection in June 2011 commented that, ‘Christ the King is an outstanding Catholic school.  There is a shared vision for Catholic Education which is embraced by the whole school community and reinforced in the school’s Mission Statement – ‘In Jesus, we learn, grow and pray together’.  Its values and ethos are visibly reflected in the exemplary attitudes and relationships between all members of the school community.

We hope you enjoy your visit!

Collective Worship Theme this week:   ‘Holy Week’

We remember all that Jesus did for us. We remember and our hearts are filled with love.  We remember how he gave his life for us.  When we remember, we celebrate and we rejoice.

We remember how he took a loaf of bread. We remember how he blessed the cup of wine.  We remember how he shared all with his friends.  When we remember, we celebrate and we rejoice.

We remember what he told us all to do.

We remember that his word is always true.  We remember he is present in our midst.  When we remember, we celebrate and we rejoice.


‘Our school is committed to safeguarding children and promoting children’s welfare and expects all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment and maintain a vigilant and safe environment. Everyone is expected to abide by the school’s guidance to work appropriately with young people’
