St Paul’s is an 11-18 mixed Catholic comprehensive school with a total of 1100 students on roll including 340 students in the Sixth form. The College has a strong ethos and is a vibrant Christian community. We are committed to making sure we never accept second best for the students in our care and look to give them a full experience of education that supports their academic, personal and faith development. 

This is summarised in our mission statement and educational vision which is:

“To provide an innovative, inspirational and Christian education which challenges, nurtures and informs our students to enable them to take their place in a changing world.”

We are proud of all that students achieve at St Paul’s and this led to us being awarded High Performing Schools Status. Our 2018 results were:

  • GCSE: 79% 9-4 with English and Maths and a progress 8 score in the top 25% nationally.
  • A2: 61 A*-B and 85% A*-C. This is an ALPS rating of ‘excellent” over the last three years.
  • Nearly 1 in 4 students have gone on to study at Russell Group universities. This year 86% of students were offered places at their first choice university.

Essentially these results are built on a belief that we have a duty to ensure that every student achieves their potential with us. We also believe it is essential to give our students the best opportunities to develop as learners, personally and in their faith journey.

“St Paul’s is an outstanding school where all learn, thrive and succeed together.” Ofsted, November 2007
