Headteacher's Welcome


“Belonging, Serving, Succeeding”


Banks St Stephen’s Church of England Primary School


Hello. I'm Gareth Allen, 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. 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.

Our curriculum is ambitious and bespoke to our school, reflecting our school motto – “Belonging, Serving, Succeeding”. We are proud of our community, strive to be of service to others and are determined that all members of our school community flourish and achieve their full potential.

In September 2021 we were inspected by OFSTED (full report in the OFSTED tab) and were delighted to be judged as strongly "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 huge outdoor spaces, including large playing fields, a large forest and pond area with a wild flower meadow. We have flower and vegetable patches and raised beds and a new polytunnel for our gardening club, "A Place to Grow".  All the classrooms are light, bright and well-resourced and we have large canopies attached to classrooms to enable year-round outdoor learning.

I have been Headteacher at Banks St Stephen’s CE Primary School since September 2023 and I am incredibly proud of the school, its children and its staff. We are at the heart of the community and work closely with Liverpool Diocese, Lancashire County Council, Banks Leisure Centre (now called "The Hub"), North Meols Parish Council, local businesses and organisations to provide a world-class education for our children. Nothing but the best is good enough!

Please email me or ring the school office and 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,

Gareth Allen
