The school is situated in the middle of a housing estate on the outskirts of the City of Bradford and is very close to the
countryside of the Allerton Lanes.

Our pupils either live in the immediate area surrounding the school or in a few cases at various out-lying areas such as Thornton, Sandy Lane and Rhodesway.  Our catchment area is larger than the other local Primary schools as the nearest Catholic Primary schools are further afield at Girlington, Clayton, Heaton and Bingley.

We have wonderful views over the valley to Clayton,
Queensbury and Thornton and have excellent playground and playing field facilities.
