Welcome from Head

Welcome to Our Lady’s Catholic High School. This website celebrates what we truly believe to be a story of exceptional success at our school. Children who become ‘one of ours’ embark on an educational path that encourages the development of personal faith, integrity of action, independence of learning and the perseverance required to achieve one’s absolute best.

head-picOur values are drawn directly from the Gospels; they are at the heart of all that we do and everything else flows from this. The expression of the individual personality that God gives to each child is encouraged from the outset through numerous opportunities to take responsibility, commit to school life and work hard as members of teams.

In 2014 the Department for Education awarded to Our Lady’s the prestigious status of, ‘Teaching School’. In this role we lead a consortium of schools that together form the Catholic Teaching Alliance. Our shared responsibility is to train the next generation of teachers and leaders in our Catholic primary and secondary schools. Such responsibility is given to only a select number of ‘Outstanding’ schools and recognises the exceptional quality of education provided here at Our Lady’s.

The highest standards of behaviour, manners and respect are fundamental aspects of life at our school. We are very proud of our pupils and of their achievements and in turn our pupils are very proud of their school and uniform because, ‘when you put on our uniform you put on our school’. Our teachers and staff are exceptionally motivated, conscientious and achieve outstanding success for all our pupils.
