Values and Vision
Bless Hugh Faringdon Catholic School follows the values of Jesus Christ. It wants every child to develop their full potential and for all to be treated as individuals, exactly how God created them. Students are encouraged to participate in a daily prayer in order to grow spiritually and gain a stronger connection with God. Teachers are enthusiastic about the subjects they teach and aim to nurture every pupil. Everyone in the school is celebrated for their achievements and are expected to praise the work of others.
“Students are motivated learners and their behaviour is good. They display the Christian values of respect and tolerance. The sixth form requires improvement. A number of students have quite weak subject skills when they join Year 12 and are not helped sufficiently to be successful on their courses. Those who leave in Year 13 are in a good position for their futures. Students who need extra support and those who speak English as an additional language are well supported and make good progress. Students who are in the Asperger Unit make exceptional progress and develop strong social and life skills.”
