As a Catholic school, we recognise the uniqueness of your child and the need to build on the firm family Catholic values established in the home and in the primary school where your child has been educated. Our children here are encouraged to bear witness to the Gospel values of love, truth, forgiveness, peace and justice. We believe that a respect for themselves, the school community and the wider world will help them to develop into positive citizens of the future. We aim to develop the whole child - spiritually, morally, socially, physically and academically.
At Bishop Ullathorne we take pride in our calm, warm atmosphere and positive relationships. Every child’s happiness and safety is at the heart of everything we do. This, combined with excellent teaching helps to foster the unique family feel of our school.
