Values and vision
Our Lady and St Chad Catholic Academy aims to work and learn through faith, prayer and trust in God. It also aims to be guided by the teachings of his son Jesus Christ and the Church, in a school where, as it lives in communion, it empowers members of its community to respect themselves and one another. The secondary academy aims to build a community where all have the confidence to make the choices which will enable them to become the best that they can be, and to work to treasure creation with wisdom and wonder.
“The quality of teaching is good and a growing proportion is outstanding. Teachers know all their students well and have high expectations. The sixth form is good. The majority of students make good progress in their courses; these meet their needs well. All students go on to training, employment or further education. The school’s sports specialism makes an exceptional contribution to the personal development of students and to the wider community.”
