Message From the Head
All Saints Catholic College is an 11-16 voluntary aided school. We are also a specialist Humanities college, which strengthens our inclusive Catholic ethos. We strive to offer the very best educational and life opportunities to our students. This was recognised by Ofsted in February 2013 stating that “This is a good school”. We are proud of our achievements.
“Teaching is good. Teachers plan a variety of interesting activities which engage students and help them make good progress.” Ofsted 2013
“Gospel values are promoted by the school’s distinctive Catholic ethos. As a result, students are tolerant, respectful and caring in the way they behave and interact with each other. Students feel safe in school.” Ofsted 2013
At All Saints, we believe in providing the highest possible level of teaching, learning, care and support. All Saints Catholic College exists to meet the needs of those who seek a distinctive Catholic education. We pride ourselves on offering an education based on the teachings and values of Jesus Christ. We aim to be a truly Christian community, where our relationships are built on respect, forgiveness and reconciliation. We encourage leadership through service in all our young people. It is of great importance to us that we educate our students to value education not just for what it brings to them, but for how it can help them contribute more fully to the communities in which they live, enabling them to take their place as responsible, confident young adults in the 21st century; we aim to live out our mission ‘To love and serve’.
The most exciting development for us here at All Saints is the plan to build a new school here on our site which is due to open in the Autumn Term 2016. The school will be built for education in the 21st century. There will be a four court sports hall, drama studio and other specialist rooms. For those of you planning to come to All Saints, the fantastic thing is that the new build will be developed whilst the rest of the school continues to function in our current buildings. There will be no portakabins. We will move into the new build when it is ready, before the ‘old’ school is demolished. Here is an image from the Education for Funding Agency website showing a typical block design for a new school such as ours:
I will update you all as our own school designs become available.
At All Saints everyone works hard to develop the unique potential in all our students. This is achieved through high expectations and a supportive learning environment. Strong partnerships are important to us, and we enjoy working closely with students, parents, parishes and the wider community. You are warmly invited to visit our school or contact us for further information.
