About our School

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to the website for Our Lady’s Catholic College.

We hope you find the content useful and interesting and that it gives you a flavour of the ambitious, forward-thinking, successful and happy community that is Our Lady’s.

We are very proud to be a Catholic school and to be described as an outstanding one by Diocese of Lancaster. As a Catholic school we hold Christ and his teachings at the centre of all we do. Our community lives by the Gospel values of compassion, forgiveness, justice, non-violence, honesty, simplicity and hope. These values inform our curriculum, our behaviour policy and the life of the school, but we have a community built of Catholics, other Christians, people of other faiths and people of no faith. All who want their children to grow in these values are welcome.

At Our Lady’s we use Saint Oscar Romero’s quote ‘Aspire not to have more but to be more’ to encourage our students to be the best that they can be. This to me epitomises what we want for the young people of Our Lady’s. They are not just encouraged to achieve well in their learning but to reach out to those less fortunate than themselves and to develop their God given gifts and talents to benefit others, as we are called to do by Christ.

I am delighted that our school community is wonderfully diverse with pupils of different faiths, nationalities and abilities. We are proud to be an inclusive school and equally proud that we have been recognised as a Lancashire School of Sanctuary for our work in welcoming and caring for all our students.

If you would like to come and see Our Lady's for yourself, I would be delighted to take you on a tour of the school during the working day. You would have the opportunity to see our happy, confident students and their talented and dedicated teachers in the classroom as well as hear about how our school is going from strength to strength. Please telephone Catherine Rowlands on 01524 66689 or email and we will be happy to make you an appointment.


With best wishes,
Helen Seddon
