St Agatha’s Catholic Primary School is a school situated at the north end of Kingston Upon Thames and near to Richmond Park in the Archdiocese of Southwark. The school provides an education for mainly, but not exclusively, Catholic children aged 3+ to 11 years.
Approximately 32% of our pupils are non-Catholic, with backgrounds of either no faith or other world religions.
There are two main separate points for admissions, for Nursery at 3+ and then for Reception at 4+. Where parents are looking for mid year placements in any other classes we are able to offer these where class sizes are less than 30. A place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception and families have to apply separately for a Reception place.

Hear from our parents
‘We are extremely grateful for all the support our children are getting at St Agatha’s school. We love the ethos of the school, loving and caring environment and all the values that are being promoted in the school.’
|‘Pastoral care of the school has been fantastic for our family. Every child appears to be so well known as an individual by the whole school team. There is so much enrichment despite the problems with school funding and staff are so enthusiastic about activities over and above the basic curriculum and definitely do not just teach to the test, which I love. The leadership is very present. The behaviour standards appear to be very good.’|
|‘Definitely the Christian approach it is founded on is the main strength of St Agatha's School. The team of workers (teachers, staff, heads) is brilliant and have a broad set of skills. Opportunities to develop and shine are put in place all the time. They don't focus only on academic, but also at personal level. Great primary school.’|
|‘Great community feeling. Strong values guiding the education and experience kids get at/from school. Focus on helping children become good, rounded individuals and not only on academic achievements. Provides opportunities for kids to engage in a wide range of activities. Encourages participation, risk taking, curiosity, good manners, effort, kindness and respect. A great group of teachers, all very committed, very nice and very dedicated to the children’s progress and needs.’|
|‘A multicultural environment with strong pastoral care. It is great that we have a breadth of backgrounds and nationalities at the school and everyone is made to feel welcome.’|
|‘I think it is a really nice school. My children are happy and safe there. They have made nice friends and I can see their progress academically.’|
|‘Overall, St Agatha's School is a fantastic school. We are blessed with an amazing team of people and great resources. We don't take it for granted. It's a priceless asset in our lives and in our community.’|
|‘My four children have all attended St Agatha's from Nursery onwards. We have always been delighted with the school - consistently high standards of teaching and behaviour, and a strong ethos and values encouraging the children to help each other and to be conscious of issues outside their immediate community. The teaching staff is warm and caring and know the children well, led by a great leadership team who know every single child in the school. The children are stimulated with a varied and exciting curriculum, go on interesting and relevant school trips and have annual events such as International Day, There is a wonderful variety of extra-curricular activities. Our children are very happy at St Agatha's and the school is getting the very best out of them both academically and personally.’|
|‘St Agatha’s could not have been a better school for both my children. Teachers and Head Teacher are really helpfully and caring. Thank you.’|
