I am very proud to serve St Paul's Catholic College as Headteacher.
St Paul's is a happy and thriving community which continues to grow with each year that passes. Children are well-cared for, happy and valued, in a school that has an established reputation for excellence.
This year is the second year where the achievements of the students have not been assessed through the traditional method of final exams at the end of the GCSE/A Level courses. This year’s process has been based upon grades awarded by schools, based on the evidence available to them that students had completed by the end of their studies. Despite this change to the process, there has been some incredible success for our youngsters and we praise their achievements. These results are a true reflection of our pupils’ high level of ambition and dedication to their studies, and place St Paul’s in the top 10% of schools nationally where it has been for the last few years.
In December 2017, we received Ofsted’s highest accolade of 'Outstanding Provider of Education’ and in recent years the school has received awards for student progress and attainment at GCSE from the Schools, Students and Teachers Network (SSAT). We have also received an Outstanding judgement our last Diocesan Section 48 Inspection.
The Catholic life of the school is at the centre of all we do, which is reflected in our mission statement "Achieving Excellence, Learning to Serve". We have a built-in culture of serving our community with everyone working together in order to achieve excellence in all that we do.
The cornerstone of these high achievements is a dedicated and hardworking staff who are proud to work at St Paul's. Our staff want to do their best for all our children and strive for excellence in everything they do.
St Paul's is on a continuous journey of improvement and we place our children at the centre of all our decisions. Our aim is simply to provide the best education in the country whilst ensuring that children feel safe, secure and happy. Each child is unique and deserves the best we can give them.
