The pursuit of excellence is at the heart of Catholic education. Our students are nurtured to be the very best they can be in every way: in their learning, their spiritual selves, their moral nature and their physical well-being. Our students clearly understand what is expected of them in reflecting the high expectations and standards characteristic at St. Catherine’s.

We expect that they take a positive and purposeful approach to their lessons; that they are ‘Ready, Respectful & Safe’.  We expect all our girls to manifest the values and standards of the school and so to reflect our Mission Statement, most especially the Gospel values that we cherish and promote.

News and events

We are excited for all the achievement that Year 9 holds as we grow and mature in preparation for our GCSE courses. This year we will begin to think about options and make exciting plans for our futures.

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 Support and Advice

This is a very important year for the Year 9 students, as they embark upon their final year in Key Stage 3 and make decisions about their Key Stage 4 options it is important that we support and encourage them 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, talk to your daughter about her work and ask her questions so she is able to demonstrate her learning.

Put a copy of her homework timetable on the fridge so that you know what she should be expecting. Check her planner regularly and to ensure that homework has been written down.
