Welcome Back - September 2017

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! We hope you had a restful and relaxing summer. Our teachers have been busy preparing their classrooms and lesson plans that promise to make for an exceptional educational experience for your son/daughter.

As we start the new academic year, it is great to welcome our students back, meet the new Year 7 students and see the school come alive again.

Thank you for ensuring that students are dressed in the correct uniform as this is important in ensuring the high standards and expectations we have here at Saint Paul’s Catholic High School.

As a Catholic Comprehensive school we are really proud of all of our students. We were delighted with the GCSE results which reflect the commitment and hard work of both students and staff and the steadfast support provided by you as parents and carers.

The good examination results are a reflection and a product of the high standards that we expect from our students. Getting the basics right is a key part of the formula for success. I believe that there is a clear correlation between attendance, punctuality to school in the morning and attainment. Many thanks for all that you do as parents and carers to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. This makes a real difference.

I am delighted to be working together with you to help our students reach their potential spiritually, academically, and socially. Working together in partnership with our parishes and communities, we nurture our life-affirming core values, encouraging each student’s spiritual and academic development.

Visitors to Saint Paul’s Catholic High School comment, without exception, on our modern Catholic ethos, our passion for teaching and learning and our sense of pride in being a community.

Our School

Saint Paul’s Catholic High School is a Voluntary Academy in the Diocese of Shrewsbury for boys and girls aged 11-16.

Staff and students work together to create a vibrant and caring Christian community, focused on excellent teaching and learning together with high aspirations for what we can be and become.

All are welcome in our school, which is inspired by faith and especially by the person and the work of Jesus and His followers.

Our Mission Statement reminds us that life is connected to loving and learning and to following Jesus in the journey that is life:

‘Journeying together with Jesus Christ, we learn to love and love to learn’

Our aim is to provide an education for the whole person, for the formation of human character through knowledge and skills, and values and virtues. For this reason we have developed a strong emphasis on knowing our students well and living the Christian values of love, compassion, respect, service and stewardship.

St Paul, Apostle of Jesus and patron of our school, said that ‘without love we are nothing’ and he taught us what it means to put love into action. We follow these principles in our teaching and learning and our high expectations for good behaviour and discipline in our school:

Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth. Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail. (St Paul’s First Letter to people in Corinth Chapter 13 verses 4 – 7)

Working together in partnership with our parishes and communities, we nurture these life-affirming values, encouraging each student’s spiritual and academic development.

Visitors to Saint Paul’s Catholic High School comment, without exception, on our modern Catholic ethos, our passion for teaching and learning and our sense of pride in being a community. If you are a prospective parent or member of staff you are invited to come and see us in action to appreciate what we are about.
