A very warm welcome to
All Saints Catholic College.
I am very proud to be the Headteacher of All Saints Catholic College. Our school is an excellent place for a child to be educated. We are at the beginning of a very exciting journey and have a new vision based on our key motto “Be Inspired. Be Excellent. Succeed.” At the core of our mission is the development of 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 work in partnership with an outstanding school in order to help us to achieve our aims.
As a Catholic Christian community we strive to ensure Gospel values are at the heart of all that we do, where the sort of person that we become is of first importance and where we have a real sense of duty and of service to others. This is articulated in the phrase “What I have I Give”.
We aim for the highest of standards in all that we do and we can only achieve the success we do with the cooperation of our pupils and families. Working together in partnership we believe that anything and everything is possible and your support is never taken for granted.
As part of our 50th anniversary celebrations our Mission Statement was reviewed and rewritten by a working party composed of pupils, parents, governors and staff:
All Saints Catholic College is an inclusive community centred on the gospel value of love. As people of God, we aim to replicate Christ’s selfless love in all areas of college life, echoing the college motto of ‘What we have, we give’. Our aim at All Saints is to ensure that the individual and unique qualities of all members of our community are respected, celebrated and treated with dignity.
We aim to support the needs and inspire the potential of those in our care. Recognising and valuing the different paths we walk, we aim to ensure that all members of our community share the same journey embedded in faith, experience and reconciliation.
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.
God our Father
Thank you for showing your endless love through our experiences at All Saints.
Let us remember the example of your Son in all our thoughts, words and actions.
Help us to appreciate and celebrate the individual and unique qualities of every member of our community and to treat one another with respect and dignity.
Let us encourage this community to be its best and support each other in the different paths we walk, and through your spirit, guide us to fulfil our college motto of ‘What we have, we give’.
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 art, music, PE, homework clubs and dance. We also have a pupil leadership team who have input on school improvement priorities.
The All Saints school community is strong and 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. In order to do this we will need your support as parents to ensure that your 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 my commitment to ensuring a high standard of education in a warm and caring school.
Visits to our school are most welcome. Should you wish to arrange to come and meet with us, please contact Karen Leigh.
