Values and vision
Holy Family Catholic School & Sixth Form’s Catholic ethos underpins all that it does. The school seeks to instil in each of its students the belief that they should have a strong concern for others. Emphasis is also placed on developing not only the academic potential of each student, but also on nurturing their creativity, spirituality, character, and resilience.
“Pupils’ and students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a strong feature of the school’s work. This contributes hugely to the sustained good results at the end of Year 11 and to mature young people in the sixth form. Teaching over time is mostly good and some of it is outstanding. It is underpinned by a strong approach through which teachers and students share a love of learning and this secures good progress for all learners.”
