This is a good school because:-

  • .The school's strong Catholic identity and ethos permeates through all aspects of its life and promotes an inclusive, outward looking community which values the individual.
  • The strong systems for providing pastoral care for both pupils and staff are at the heart of the school's mission and is commendable.
  • The school's high standards of behaviour engenders a culture of respect among pupils for themselves and others.
  • The quality of teaching is good across the key stages and sometimes outstanding.
  • Pupils show interest in the religious life of others and, as they move through the school, grow in confidence in expressing their own views and beliefs whilst valuing the views of those from other faith perspectives.
