St William of York is a mainstream Catholic Primary School, the religious character of which inspires, unifies and shapes every aspect of school life. Our school has strong links with Salford Diocese, our parish and the wider community. We are a vibrant multicultural, multi ethnic and multi faith inclusive Catholic school. We know our children well and welcome children from a diverse community, including International New Arrivals. We celebrate diversity and appreciate that our often complex intake adds a valuable dimension and contribution to our ethos. We have a very supportive parent body who are increasingly involved in school life. Our Parish Priest comes into school weekly to lead worship for our pupils. We have active GIFT and Caritas teams and our pupils lead many aspects of the Catholic life of our school. Our aim for our children is that they know they are loved by Jesus Christ and that this inspires them to follow in his teachings.
