On 22nd June and 23rd June 2023, St Scholastica's was inspected by the Catholic School Inspectorate.
I am delighted to share with you details of our report which graded St Scholastica’s as Outstanding in every category (Catholic life and mission, Religious education and Collective worship).
The key findings were as follows:
• The leadership team, led by the visionary head teacher, joyfully live out the mission ‘Living, Loving and Learning through Christ’.
• Relationships throughout the school are based on the highest levels of care and respect.
• Engagement with parents is strong and they feel part of this thriving community, which is a safe, inclusive and welcoming space for pupils.
• Pupils’ attitudes to their learning in RE are strong and they are eager to further develop their faith.
• Pupils are actively engaged in supporting those in need, recognising that their mission is to serve others, and understanding that ‘we are a Catholic school, we learn through Jesus and follow in his footsteps’.
The Outstanding judgement reflects several years of hard work from the pupils and staff. This is in addition to the continued support from our parents and governors. I feel so proud to lead such a wonderful school community and I’m so pleased to be able to share this great news with you!
