It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Christ the King Catholic Voluntary Academy community. As a Catholic Academy we pride ourselves on providing an excellent educational experience for all students which is underpinned by our mission which is ‘to provide the best education and care we can for all members of our Living Faith Community’.
I would like to make you aware of a very important aspect of Catholic Education which focuses on how Catholic Schools are monitored and inspected. At the beginning of March, a Diocesan Canonical Inspection was carried out by three inspectors from the Diocese of Nottingham. Like an OFSTED inspection, all Catholic Schools receive a grade. Inspectors observe and report on the quality of Catholic Life, Collective Worship and Religious Education which prevail in the School. The report was made available at the end of March and I am delighted to inform you that Christ the King was judged to be an Outstanding Catholic School! The Christ the King community is extremely proud of its achievements and a copy of the report is available via the website.
This year, we celebrate the ‘year of mercy’. This is an opportunity for all members of the Christ the King community to receive God’s mercy so that we can forgive others and enjoy a period of spiritual renewal. The ‘year of mercy’ exemplifies our desire to support and encourage all young people within our care and I hope that when you visit us, you will witness this important aspect of everyday school life.
Regarding the website itself, may I encourage you to have a look at the news items as they celebrate the most recent achievements of both students and staff and if you have not visited the school before, the ‘prospective parent’ section has been designed to answer any questions or queries that you may have. If you would like to visit the school or have any questions about the information published on the website, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
