The Parish is served by two schools: Our Lady of Grace Infant and Nursery School, and Our Lady of Grace Junior School. These are Voluntary Aided Roman Catholic schools, belonging to the Diocese of Westminster. There are also three Catholic secondary schools in Brent.
Our Lady of Grace Infant & Nursery School
‘We are learning to grow and love like Jesus’
Our Lady of Grace Infant & Nursery School is about half a mile from the church at the junction of Dollis Hill Avenue and the Edgware Road. The part time nursery is able to accommodate children who will be four years old between the 1st of September and 31st August and the school accepts children in Reception, Years One and Two. The Governors consider that the greatest pastoral benefit from coming to Our Lady of Grace is obtained by children who come from homes where the Catholic faith is practised. Children who attend Mass regularly with their parents and who participate in the activities of the parish, will derive the fullest benefit from the complimentary influences of home, school and parish. The Governors give preference to baptised Roman Catholic children and baptismal and birth certificates will be required. Further information and application forms can be obtained from the school office either in person or by telephone on 0208 450 6757.
Our Lady of Grace Junior School
The Junior School can be found directly opposite the church in Dollis Hill Lane. It is a two form entry school for children between the ages of seven and eleven years old. The children are arranged in eight classes of mixed ability according to age. Our Lady of Grace Junior School aims, through the teachings of Christ, to create a learning environment in which all children can reach their full potential and where pupils have the opportunity to achieve high academic standards. This is done through close partnership with families, parish and the whole community by creating a caring happy atmosphere within the school. For a copy of the school brochure and application details please call into the school or telephone the school office on 0208 450 6002.
