A welcome from our Head of School

My name is Mrs Burke, Acting Head of School, and I would like to welcome you to our website.  St Chad’s Catholic and Church of England High School is a fully inclusive, faith centred, welcoming Christian community guided by the example of Jesus Christ.  We work together in order to nurture, value, and support all members of our school family.  We promote loving, respectful relationships, lasting friendships filled with laughter and a secure learning environment for all staff and students.  Together we will seek to realise our potential with pride, ambition and positivity.

At St Chad's we strive to ensure that we all follow our values (Love, Respect, Charity and Community) to understand what it is to be a member of our caring community. By doing this, we hope to  encourage our students to achieve their full potential, and their aspirations for the future.
