ON BEHALF OF PUPILS, STAFF AND THE GOVERNING BODY,
I would like to welcome you to Bishop Vaughan Catholic School. We hope that you will enjoy navigating this website, and that you will gain an insight into the vibrant life of our school.
We place emphasis on high standards in all areas of school life, with the expectation that learners are prepared to give of their best academically, to engage in the rich offering of extra-curricular activities where possible and to reflect the values that bind us as a community in their dealings with one another. We are delighted that parents – with whom we aim to foster effective home-school links – and visitors to our school comment upon the welcoming, polite and courteous nature of our pupils; ours is an inclusive community founded upon respect. We consider this an important part of our role in nurturing individuals that are able to make valuable contributions as responsible, compassionate members of society.
Bishop Vaughan’s Governors and staff are committed to the provision of an inclusive, Christian education for all of our pupils in accordance with the principles and teachings of the Catholic faith. The learning experiences of students are tailored to embrace the various aspects of a broad education: academic, emotional, cultural, physical, social, moral and spiritual. In essence we set ourselves the task of helping our young people to get the most out of their lives and of becoming the best that they can be. As you look through this website, I am sure that you will see numerous examples of the young people in our care doing just that; we consider it our privilege to help them in doing so.
