Modelled on the Holy Family of Nazareth.

Welcome to St Michaels, Houghton

I would like to warmly welcome you to St Michael’s Catholic Primary School. 

Located in the town of Houghton-le-Spring, the parish of St. Michael’s began educating children in 1880 as a senior school. 1912 saw the opening of an infant school. The modern building you see today was opened in 2000 and is home to up to 210 children, aged 4-11. 

About Us

We believe that all members of our school family should be valued, nurtured and feel a sense of belonging. We strive to ensure that each child, in our care, will discover and develop their own special gifts and talents, experience success and feel a true sense of achievement.
