Headteacher's Welcome


“Belonging, Serving, Succeeding”


Banks St Stephen’s Church of England Primary School


Hello. I'm Joanne Owen, Headteacher of Banks St Stephen’s Church of England Primary School.  Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I am so proud to be Headteacher of this wonderful Church of England school. We are a Lancashire County Council school and part of the Liverpool Diocese.

We have eight separate classes, including a thriving nursery and approx 170 pupils on roll. Our children are eager to learn and exceptionally well behaved, with very supportive parents. Our experienced Governing Body is closely involved with the school and we all work together as a dedicated team.

From September 2020 we are teaching a new and exciting curriculum, which is bespoke to our school and reflects our school motto – “Belonging, Serving, Succeeding”. 

In September 2021 we were inspected by OFSTED (full report in the OFSTED tab) and were delighted to be judged as "GOOD" in all areas.

The school is in an idyllic, semi-rural location, tucked away just off the main Preston to Southport road (so an easy commute from a number of directions). We are fortunate to have extensive grounds and outdoor space, including large playing fields and a forest and the classrooms are light, bright and well resourced.

I have been Headteacher at Banks St Stephen’s CE Primary School since September 2019 and I am incredibly proud of the school, its children and its staff.

Please email me or ring the school office and, in a Covid-safe way, I would be delighted to show you round or have a chat on the phone. Below are links to the school Facebook page and also a virtual guided tour to give you a flavour of what we offer.

Yours faithfully,

Joanne Owen
