Section 48 Inspection Report - an OUTSTANDING Catholic College!

We are absolutely thrilled to be able to share our Section 48 Denominational Report in which we were graded outstanding! This grade is reflective not just on our effectiveness as providers of education but on our community - the staff, students, parents and governors - and the nurture, care and spirituality demonstrated through everything we do. Here are just a few quotes but we encourage you to read the report in full, it is something we are very proud of.

'Pupils take pride in their school and believe that they are better people for attending here. Pupils gain a great deal from the solid and positive role models among staff and sixth form students.'

'Pupils articulate with great confidence and assuredness that they feel appreciated, that their views matter and that, regardless of their circumstances, they will be supported by caring teachers and support staff.'

'There is a sense that each whole person is being formed, not just his or her intellect. Pupils of all ages are able to articulate that they feel valued for who they are.'

'Pastoral leaders and support staff with responsibility for pupils who have learning needs or are vulnerable are faithful and trustworthy in their delivery of Christian values. They demonstrate unstinting and compassionate commitment to pupil welfare.'

'Parental support for the school is strong. Parents described the fact that pupils are respected by the staff and that they are treated fairly and as individuals. They praise the inclusivity of the school and appreciate the fact that issues are handled with compassion.'

'The quality of provision for the Catholic Life of the school is outstanding.'

'Pupils have a high regard for their Religious Education teachers and this contributes to their success as learners.'
