Welcome

Welcome to All Saints’ Catholic Academy and thank you for taking the time to find out about us.  All Saints’ is a welcoming and successful Catholic Academy, aiming to provide a first class Catholic education for all our students.  We are a ‘family’ where respect and care are of paramount importance. 
As a Catholic Academy the ethos of All Saints’ reflects firm gospel values; we use our God-given talents to ensure we do the best we possibly can.  The Academy motto is “We Shall Serve” and, as such, the school fosters a view that students are here to serve themselves and to serve each other by supporting the school community, and outside, through their daily work.
We strive to ensure each student is safe, happy and successful.  We pride ourselves on providing an excellent educational experience for all students, which is underpinned by our mission statement: ‘Through Catholic values and principles, every person at All Saints’ Academy will achieve their full potential: spiritually, academically, socially, morally and physically’.
Secondary education represents a major stage in the life of each young person and so we aim to work together with parents, carers, parishes and the local community to support the young people; enabling them to develop and grow within the community and to build together a real sense of identity within All Saints’ Catholic Academy.
All Saints’ is part of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi Academy Trust and there are strong links with both our feeder and secondary schools within the MAT. Developing our students and giving them the skills to be able to follow their chosen path is an important focus for the Academy.
We seek the highest academic standards and excellence in all we do.  Our focus on learning, improving teaching and high expectations, set in Christian values, are shown in ‘The All Saints’ Way’.  All students and their families are expected to support our Catholic values. As expected in a Catholic community, we say prayers at the start and end of each day and hold a weekly mass, which is celebrated in our School Chapel.
Many students participate in leadership opportunities through the House system, which is one the school’s strengths.  There are also opportunities to be involved in our Chaplaincy teams, sports, the arts, the choir, musical ensembles and the Young Enterprise scheme.  All Saints’ has its own theatre company, 4th Wall, who annually run two major productions and 6th Wall, our 6th form-led production company with one show a year. 
I am proud of All Saints’ and recommend it to you.
