St Catherine's Catholic School

“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire." St. Catherine of Siena

Welcome to St Catherine's
Catholic School

It is with great pleasure as Headteacher of St Catherine’s that I can introduce you to our amazing school. I hope that by viewing the pages of the website you will get an insight in to the community of our school and all the factors which make St Catherine’s successful.

We have an enthusiastic body of girls and staff each bringing their unique skills and God given talents to our school. We recognise that each child is an individual and we strive to ensure that they all reach their full potential in all aspects of school life and beyond. Our vision is summarised in the words of St Catherine of Siena “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”
