Values and vision

The ethos of Bishop Ullathorne Catholic School is strongly influenced by faith, which is demonstrated in the motto “Soli Deo”, or “For God only”. Teachers recognise the uniqueness of every child, allowing them to develop spiritually, morally, socially and physically as well as academically. 

The traditional values of the secondary school include everything from achieving through endeavour and placing an importance on hard work, to working in partnership with parents and the local community and wearing the Bishop Ullathorne school uniform with pride. A sense of belonging combined with strong pastoral care will support children at this important time of their life.

Ofsted report

“[The headteacher] and other leaders make frequent checks on the performance of pupils and teachers. The information from the checks enables you to pinpoint effective practice and where further improvements are needed. There is a well-thought-out programme of training and support for teachers that focuses on individual and whole-school priorities. The majority of subject leaders know their departments well and lead improvements effectively.”
