St Antony's Roman Catholic School is an 11-16 co-educational school in Urmston, Trafford. We are a thriving, over-subscribed school with a waiting list. We place an emphasis on providing strong support to each student so that they can be the best version of themselves and succeed in their education.
Students enjoy attending school and this is evidenced in the higher than average attendance rates that we have, the great things that they say about the school, and our parent satisfaction feedback.
We are situated in the Borough of Trafford, under the trusteeship of the Salford Diocese. The Local Authority is located in two Roman Catholic Diocese, Shrewsbury and Salford. The school is in the northern part of the borough. It serves the parishes of Our Lady's Deanery, Salford Diocese i.e. St Alphonsus, Old Trafford; St Ann's, Stretford; English Martyrs, Urmston; St Hugh of Lincoln, Stretford; Our Lady of the Rosary, Davyhulme; St Monica's, Flixton and St Teresa's, Firswood.
The school was formed in September 1990 following the amalgamation of three small secondary modern schools; St Mary's, St Paul's and Cardinal Vaughan.
We have superb facilities at St Antony’s and all students get the opportunity to use these. We have a chapel that can be used for prayer and reflection, a well resourced reading space, football pitches and outdoor sports space, a multi-use hall, dedicated school canteen, and lockers and water fountains for students to use. Our classrooms are vibrant and well-resourced with each curriculum area having the specialist equipment needed to provide the best learning experience for students.
