About us

St Cuthbert’s is a voluntary-aided, 11-16, co-educational comprehensive Catholic high school in the St. Helens Authority in the north west of England. There are 731 pupils on roll of whom 45% are baptised Catholic, with 33% from other Christian denominations, and 22% from other faith or religious traditions.

We are a school with an outstanding Catholic Christian ethos.  We are a school with students who flourish as a result of the attentiveness to their needs and the pervading sense of justice instilled by staff.  We are a school with students who are confident to take full responsibility for themselves and their actions and are quick to praise and celebrate the achievements of others.  We are a school that works together as a Christian family to live the message of the Good News of Jesus Christ to love God and our neighbour.

We are St Cuthbert's.

Our Golden Rule

“Treat others as you would like to be treated!” (Matthew 7:12)

  • respecting and embracing all cultures and recognising that as individuals we are unique (Genesis 1:26)
