Our School

Welcome Back - April 2018

We have had a good start to 2018 - thank you for your continued support.  

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. Yet another thank you is also in order for your support at our Consultation Days and Year 8 Options Evening.  

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 core values, encouraging each student’s spiritual and academic development.

During last term, we enjoyed many activities at Saint Paul’s including our First Aid training; the Year 11 students taking their PPE exams in preparation for their GCSEs this summer; we have supported Mental Health Awareness Week; focused on raising aspirations amongst all our students; our students put much enthusiasm and joy into the creation of the school garden; students have made time for acts of good will, prayer, missionary work and chaplaincy; students enjoyed a creative writing workshop at the magnificent John Rylands library; and we held a successful visit from author, M A Griffin. 

Working with the local and wider community is of high importance to us and community links are fully embedded into the life and work of the school and we believe they provide valuable experiences which support the curriculum and enhance our students’ learning. In line with our core values, we feel that through community projects our students will develop respect for others and care for the environment.

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.

Thank you for visiting our website and taking an interest in our community.
