Outstanding School

Cardinal Allen is an outstanding Catholic school.

We are proud to share the results of our recent Section 48 Inspection Report. The report reaffirms our status as an outstanding Catholic school and acknowledges the fantastic work that the pupils and staff are undertaking on a daily basis.

"Pupils are proud to belong to Cardinal Allen Catholic High School; they are greatly appreciative of all that the school provides and how it supports and nurtures them. They feel encouraged and inspired to live by the school motto and be all that you can be”.

"Leaders and governors are deeply committed to the Church’s mission in education; they are unequivocal in prioritising the Catholic life of the school."

"The ethos of the school is rooted firmly in the teaching of the Catholic Church. The fruits of this ethos are manifest in the pupils and staff in the school; through the very strong relationships and in the profound sense of belonging and of pride that exists."

"The behaviour and attitudes of pupils observed throughout the inspection were exemplary."

"Pupils enjoyment and achievement in RE is outstanding."

"Cardinal Allen is an outstanding Catholic school."

I know that the inspectors were extremely impressed with the huge number of questionnaires that were returned to them as a part of the inspection process and I would like to thank you for that support. I would also like to thank you and your children for the continued support for the Catholic life of our school.

Outstanding we may be, but we are not complacent, and we continue to strive to provide the very best care and opportunities for your children.

Yours sincerely

Andrew Cafferkey

Headteacher
