Headteacher’s Welcome

I am immensely proud to be the Headteacher of Saint Cecilia’s Church of England School, an inclusive, co-educational academy for pupils aged 11-18 years.

“Glorifying God through outstanding, enjoyable education”

Saint Cecilia’s is a proudly Christian school that values the uniqueness of each individual made in the image of God.  Faith; service; courage; justice; hope; love; reconciliation and community are at the heart of Saint Cecilia’s - firmly rooted in our school ethos and relationships.

Specialising in the teaching of Music and Mathematics, Saint Cecilia’s is a well-respected and hugely over-subscribed school.  Our success and ethos for learning and achievement is built upon a commitment to Christian values and high expectations of all in our school community.  Teaching is exceptional, our curriculum is challenging and standards of behaviour are high.

It’s a pleasure to lead a team of such highly qualified and dedicated teachers and support staff, who offer all pupils a well-balanced, challenging and enriching education within a supportive Christian context. This exceptional provision ensures that student progress is better than in the vast majority of schools, and many of our GCSE, BTEC and A Level courses have extremely high pass rates, enabling the vast majority of students to progress to university.

Our taught curriculum is complemented by a varied programme of extra-curricular activities that nurture talent and encourage pupils to develop a wide range of skills and interests.

At the end of seven years, our pupils leave us with a keen sense of right and wrong, a commitment to going above and beyond and an understanding of how they can contribute to society in a meaningful way.

I look forward to meeting you, should you take one of the many opportunities to visit our school.

Mrs Renata Joseph, Headteacher
