Our last inspection by the Catholic Schools Inspectorate was conducted in January 2024, when we were delighted to be judged as outstanding once again.

Some of the highlights of the report include:

  • Leaders, staff, and governors ensure that the school’s Catholic life and mission have the highest priorities and demonstrate outstanding concern for all, particularly the needs of the most vulnerable.
  • Leaders, staff, and governors place Catholic social teaching at the heart of every aspect of school life.
  • The recently appointed religious education subject leader, supported by senior leaders, has an inspiring vision for the subject, which includes developing the highest quality teaching and learning.
  • Pupils are confident in their reflections on prayer and liturgy and are enthusiastic in sharing the ways in which these have inspired them in their wider lives.
