To Love and Serve
At All Saints Catholic College, our mission is to put Christ at the centre of our community, to
lead everyone on a personal journey based on the teachings and values of Jesus Christ.
We aim to provide opportunities to nurture and develop the Faith handed down to us by the
Catholic Church. In serving God, and one another, we encourage everyone to fulfil their
potential and realise their aspirations.

GCSE Results 2017
Another bumper set of results for the students of All Saints Catholic College, despite the recent changes to the grading system for English and maths. Many students achieved the new Grade 5 or above (equivalent of higher C grade pass)( 58.5% English, 41.5% maths) and even more gained Grade 4 or above in English (68.3%)and maths (61.8%). Grade 4 is considered to be an equivalent of ‘C’ pass grade. It was a challenging time for both staff and students in preparing for these brand new GCSEs. These results are a reflection of the hard work and resilience shown by both students and staff.
Message From the Principal
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 June 2017 stating that “This school continues to be good”. We are proud of our achievements.
“The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection” Ofsted, June 2017
“Pupils feel safe and speak with confidence about the approachable nature of the staff and the number of people to whom they can turn in times of need.” Ofsted June 2017
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’.
“Collectively, you are clear in your aims and ambition for the school working to ensure that the needs, both social and academic, of individual pupils are met. It is clear that you know your pupils well and this has enabled a more personalised approach to academic and social development. This approach and ethos is rooted in the school’s mission statement.” Ofsted, June 2017
Following four years of planning, the most exciting development for us here at All Saints is that our brand new school and sports centre officially became the new All Saints Catholic College from 1st September 2017 . The school is built for education in the 21st century . As a Catholic School the chapel is close to the entrance and visible to those arriving at the school.
There are new classrooms for RE, English, Maths, Humanities, as well as four new science labs and two science studios. For practical subjects there are new workshops for Design Technology, Music and Art. The main hall is linked to the new drama studio. The Learning Resource Centre has ICT facilities for thirty students as well as a reading area with books and other resources. There are three other ICT-rich teaching spaces. In the sports centre we have not just a four court sports hall but also a dance/fitness studio. The dining room links out onto an outdoor social space with room for both relaxation and sports such as basketball or football. Our students have lockers available to them too. There is a lift in the building to enable access to all areas for anyone with a disability.
We want our students to thrive in our new school environment and build on the great GCSE results we have achieved so far.
Here is an image of what the main building and the sports centre will look like as you come down the drive in future once all the landscaping has been completed.
