Religious Inspection

Our last Section 48 Religious Inspection from the Diocesan Education Service was in May 2022, when we were judged to be an outstanding Catholic school once again.

Some of the key findings of the report include:

  • The provision for Catholic Life has a deeply profound impact on pupils’ moral and spiritual formation, bringing them ever-closer to Christ.
  • The quality of learning and teaching in Religious Education is of a very high standard.
  • Pupils and the entire school community are engaged and inspired by the school’s high-quality provision for Collective Worship.
  • The school is the beating heart of the community. Its contribution is valued, appreciated and widely respected.
