A very warm welcome to
All Saints Catholic College.
I am very proud to be the Headteacher of All Saints Catholic College – a happy family of staff, pupils and parents working together to provide an excellent education to the young people of Tameside. We are a good school and our school is an excellent place for a child to be educated. Our motto is “Be Inspired. Be Excellent. Succeed” and at the core of our mission is a relentless drive to provide an outstanding Catholic education for every child who comes to our school. As a school we have high expectations for what every one of our pupils can achieve, and a strong belief that we can inspire every child to excel in whatever they choose to do in their future. We do this within a culture that Ofsted described as vibrant, happy, joyful, purposeful and where everyone feels valued. This is why the personal development and welfare support we give our pupils was described as outstanding.
We are a Catholic community dedicated to providing an excellent education to all of our pupils so that they fulfil their ambitions and exceed their expectations.
We work together as a family through mutual respect so that everyone succeeds academically and grows spiritually.
All Saints Catholic College is founded on faith in Jesus Christ and is committed to the gospel values of love, truth, justice and peace. Our mission is to be a Catholic College where every individual is highly valued and where care and concern for others is central to our work. All our pupils are expected to achieve their potential and become equipped for adult life able to make a full contribution to society.
We have our own Chapel space as a place of tranquility, reflection, prayer and rest. Through our Chaplaincy provision, we offer the opportunity for pupils in all year groups to experience a retreat, using Savio House (Cheshire), Castlerigg Manor (Lake District), Linett Clough (Mellor), The Marist Centre in Chorlton and participation in the annual Shrewsbury Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes. Throughout the year there are numerous opportunities to worship, reflect and develop our distinctive community together.
We engage in fundraising events for our chosen charities as well as those chosen by our pupils. Each year, remembering our duty to the most vulnerable in society, we raise money to support those who live lives of poverty, both in our local and global communities. Charities which benefit from the generosity of our community include Cornerstone Homeless Centre in Manchester, CAFOD, the Good Shepherd Appeal and local charities for children with Downs Syndrome.

Enable us to use our gifts and talents to the best of our ability so that we succeed on our chosen path.
We believe that All Saints can make a radical difference to the life chances of our pupils and that we can help nurture confident, active and socially responsible adults. As a college, we develop our pupils to become rounded individuals who will be positive members of society with a breadth of skills that will enable their successful future careers. As such, we offer a variety of extra-curricular activities such as performing arts, art, music, PE, homework clubs, languages and Latin. We also have a very active pupil leadership team who have input on school improvement priorities.
The All Saints school community is united and strong. We are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers in order to ensure high standards of behaviour and achievement for the young people who study here. We have the support of our parents to ensure that our children attend every day, study hard, complete their classwork and homework to the best of their ability and follow the behaviour code of the school. In return you have the commitment of our staff to ensuring a high standard of education in a warm and caring school.
Visits to our school during the day are most welcome. Should you wish to arrange to come and meet with us, please contact Mrs Leigh.
