Holy Name Primary School, Preston East

Welcome to Holy Name Primary School, Preston East.  We are a thriving community that encourages its students to take ownership of their learning. We welcome Catholic and multifaith families and embrace positive partnerships between school, home and parish.

At Holy Name Primary School, we value the holistic development of each student, therefore the academic, spiritual and social/emotional wellbeing of each child is paramount at all times.

We encourage and build upon the Gospel values of Love, Respect and Tolerance and encourage our students to live out their faith in a loving and nurturing environment.

We look forward to welcoming you.
