Message From The Executive Principal

Dear Parent/Carer,

Central to our mission is the relationship we have with you - our parents. This year the number of parents choosing Our Lady & St John Catholic College means that we are now oversubscribed. This is a sign of the “rapid progress” captured by Ofsted reports and, more importantly, the progress of pupils in our school which has seen us perform well in school league tables. I am delighted with the faith and support that the community are placing in our increasingly successful story. A success story that is set to continue.

We are entering an exciting new era. We have been chosen to partner with St Patrick’s National Teaching School, Salford. As a result of the success of OLSJ, I have been asked to lead on the educational standards and outcomes in both schools as Executive Principal. My mission is to ensure that the pupils of OLSJ get the same opportunities and standards as the pupils in the National Teaching School. St Patrick’s has long been recognised for its excellence. My job will be to ensure excellence in both schools.

I am delighted that we have secured the appointment of Mr Peter Tite as our Headteacher. Mr Tite is an experienced and successful Headteacher and will be an asset to our school. Together we will ensure that our pupils benefit from the very best teaching as we ensure that we develop a school that fulfills our Mission to nurture the “gifts and talents of all”.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Catholic Community. We look forward to welcoming you into an exciting future.

Mr Patrick Murden
Executive Principal
