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.

A massive well done to this Y5 child who came runner up in a football tournament in Malta. His team were unbeaten all weekend and beat teams such as Barcelona and Nesebar. Despite him scoring in the final, they unfortunately lost on goal difference. Well done 👏🏼

Today we begin the season of Lent by celebrating Ash Wednesday. Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and alms giving. We remember Jesus' example as he went into the desert for 40 days and nights ✝️
How are you observing this six-week season? How can you deepen your prayer life? 🙏🏾
