Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to Christ the King Catholic Voluntary Academy

I feel honoured, proud and privileged to be the Headteacher of Christ the King Catholic Academy. I want to thank you for taking the time to view our website. I hope that the information it contains will help you to get a sense of the wonderfully vibrant and successful Catholic community of Christ the King.

Our Mission is ‘to provide the best education and care for all in a living faith community’. In order for this mission to be achieved, everyone, staff, students, parents and Governors understand that they are responsible for working hard to achieve it. It means that we work together as a community, supporting each other and encouraging each other to reach our potential. We each have a specific role to play in this and we make a commitment, when we join the community, to fulfil our part.

We want students to achieve in all aspects of their development. We value the uniqueness of each person and believe it is part of our mission as a Catholic school to ensure that we also have opportunities to develop individuals so that they can reach their full potential. This means that we support our students to achieve the highest levels academically, but also that we provide experiences that allow them to develop spiritually, socially and morally too.

We believe that God created us all to be unique and so we celebrate our differences whilst at the same time strengthening the bonds that hold us all together. We expect that all members of our community treat each other with respect. Staff and students live by the message in the gospel that we should treat others as we would want to be treated.

We make a commitment to enable students to encounter Jesus in all we say and do. This means that the values in the gospel of love, forgiveness, tolerance are evident in the ways that we interact with each other. It means that we provide opportunities within each day for students to pray, to reflect on their life, their beliefs, and their actions towards others.

If you are interested in finding out more about us, I would encourage you to visit the Academy so that you can experience first-hand the warm, vibrant and unique atmosphere that makes our community so successful.
