The Catholic School of St Gregory The Great Believe and Achieve


Our School

The Catholic School of Saint Gregory The Great is a primary school and has pupils aged 4 to 11 in 7 year groups from Foundation Stage through to Year 6. In Gloucestershire children start school in the school year in which they turn 5.


Viewing our School 

We are delighted to be able to welcome you to  view our school.  If your child is starting school next September in EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) please call the office on 01242 513659 and make an appointment to come and view our school, we love meeting new people! 


We hold small weekly group tours by appointment only from Oct - Jan. We do ask that:

  • That you do not bring any children.  If possible we ask that you view the school without your children so that you are able to fully experience the school and see what life at St Gregory's is like on a typical day.  If however you cannot find childcare we are happy for you to bring your child.
  • That you bring your child's original birth certificate and Baptismal certificate (if applicable) so that we can take a copy.


We look forward to seeing you on one of our upcoming tours but in the meantime we have  put together a short video so that you can see our school and meet our wonderful children and some of the staff. Please visit HERE to view our video.

We know that this video  won’t answer all of the questions you have about primary school for your child but if you have any other questions, save them for your tour or we’d love you to email them to:  and we’ll get back to you very soon!
