"Destination information for pupils leaving Year 11 shows that pupils are being well prepared to move into further education, training or employment. The strategic leadership of careers education, information, advice and guidance is very effective." Ofsted, September 2016
At St Cuthbert's we have created an atmosphere of success and shared celebration of achievement. Students of all abilities make good progress, with the most able students thriving as a result of rigorous academic standards and flexible approaches to learning.
Our students leave at the end of their St Cuthbert's experience equipped with the qualifications, skills and attributes to enable them to pursue their chosen path into further education or employment with training.
On the 20th and 21st September 2016, the school underwent an Ofsted Inspection and received an overall effectiveness judgement of Good.
"This is a truly inclusive school where every pupil is valued. All pupils receive high-quality support, particularly those who are vulnerable. Leaders have created a culture in which all are given the chance to be successful."
"The headteacher has a clear and ambitious vision which is shared by everyone in the school community. She leads with both rigour and humanity. She is ably supported by a very strong team of senior leaders."
"The work that the school does to keep its pupils safe is exemplary. The welfare and personal development of pupils are a high priority for all staff."
"Improvements in the quality of teaching, learning and assessment have had a positive impact on pupils’ outcomes."
"Pupils value the support that they receive from staff, which creates a positive learning environment."
"Pupils behave extremely well both in lessons and around the school. They are polite and friendly."
"Pupils’ attendance has improved significantly over the last two years."
In June 2018 we saw our Section 48 Inspection which looks at Catholic life across the school. We are delighted to share the report with you. Thank you to all students, families, staff and governors for their valued contribution.
