News and events

We would like to congratulate all the students for their start to Year 7 which has been an anxious time for many of them. It is very pleasing to hear such positive news regarding their hard work, effort and conduct.  It is important that this is maintained throughout Year 7 as it is the basis for future success.

It is important for the students to get back into the school routine. They need to be equipped for learning by packing their bags the night before and make sure they arrive at school/lessons on time.

Study Advice.

We want to support and encourage your daughters to remain organised and focused.

  • Monitor your daughter's bedtime. As they grow older your daughter's will tell you that they should be allowed to stay up later but they still need a lot of sleep. Students who are tired find it difficult to concentrate and remain focused.
  • Agree a regular time for your daughter to do her Homework so that she has a routine. Ensure that she has a space to do this, whether that is in bedroom or at the kitchen or dining room table. Talk to your daughter about her work and ask her questions to show that you are interested.
  • Put a copy of her Homework timetable on the fridge so that you know what she should be expecting. 
  • If you know there are areas that your daughter needs to make further progress in then find a way to support her with this e.g. if she has problems with spelling or subject specific vocabulary, put key words on the fridge or cupboard doors so that she can be reminded about them as she walks through the kitchen to get a drink or a snack. Test her on them.
  • Talk to your daughter about school and her learning!

Our vision for the year

I would like to congratulate all the students who worked studiously during what was a challenging time of remote learning. It is important that this is maintained throughout year 10 as our students begin their Key Stage 4 journey. Our anchor scripture for the year is found in Philippians 3:14

“with my eyes fixed on the goal I push on to secure the prize”

The prize being the pride of leaving St Catherine’s knowing they have tried their best. It is important for the students to get back into the school routine. They need to be equipped for learning by packing their bags the night before and make sure they arrive at school/lessons on time.
