St. Bernadette's is a Catholic Primary School offering full–time education for Reception to Year 6 (4-11 year olds) and we are part of the St. John Bosco Catholic Academy Company (MAC). Situated about a mile from Brownhills High Street in a pleasant location, with attractive grounds. The school comes under the authority of the Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham and Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council/Walsall Children’s Services.
The school has been providing Catholic education in Brownhills since 1972 and is situated in grounds comprising two playing fields. The school has a maximum annual intake of 30. Currently there are seven classes.
The school is deemed a small school and as such staff members are able to know each child individually and uniquely. Each child is regarded as a child of God with his/her own self-worth and dignity, which the school aims to recognise, foster and develop throughout his/her time at St. Bernadette's.
Priority for admission is given to baptised Catholics. However, because of the school’s excellent reputation for pastoral care and academic achievement the number of non-Catholic children has increased in recent years.
The traditional secondary school that children attend from here is St. Francis of Assisi R.C. Catholic Technology College, Aldridge. However, only Catholic children are certain to be offered places there. Other popular secondary schools are Brownhills School, Queen Mary Schools, Walsall, Shire Oak Academy, Walsall and Erasmus Darwin Academy
