Happy New Year and welcome to 2018! Welcome back from the Christmas holidays, which I hope were lovely and celebratory for you and for your family. Welcome back to the start of the spring term and best wishes to everyone for the year that lies before us.
It was wonderful to see the students coming into school looking enthusiastic and ready to work. The students have already settled into their routines and have completed some great work. What a fabulous start!
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.
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.
We already have a great deal planned for the Spring term:
• 17 January Primary Schools Dodgeball Competition

Thank you as always for your support and encouragement and for your prayers. We benefit so much from these and face the challenges of this new year with confidence together in the love of God for each of us and for all.
Thank you for visiting our website and taking an interest in our community.
We look forward to a happy and successful 2018!
