About the employer

I am very proud to serve St Paul's Catholic College as Headteacher. 

St Paul's is a happy and thriving community which continues to grow with each year that passes.  Children are well-cared for, happy and valued, in a school that has an established reputation for excellence.

This year is the second year where the achievements of the students have not been assessed through the traditional method of final exams at the end of the GCSE/A Level courses. This year’s process has been based upon grades awarded by schools, based on the evidence available to them that students had completed by the end of their studies. Despite this change to the process, there has been some incredible success for our youngsters and we praise their achievements. These results are a true reflection of our pupils’ high level of ambition and dedication to their studies, and place St Paul’s in the top 10% of schools nationally where it has been for the last few years.
