This page shows our dedication to celebrating excellence in all of its forms. Here at St Cuthbert's we equip our young people academically, practically, socially and morally, so they're ready for the next step in their lives, be that going to college, moving into apprenticeships or starting employment or training.

"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.
