Cardinal Allen
Catholic High School

Our Ethos and Values

Cardinal Allen is a progressive, exciting and happy school in which our students achieve outstanding levels of personal development. The students and staff recognise the importance of the school's Catholic and Christian education mission and are committed to it in every way. We are all proud to belong to a school offering rich challenge and extended opportunities to learn within a caring atmosphere of support for our students. We are in partnership with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Lancaster and Lancashire Local Education Authority (LEA). The Christian ethos of the school is reflected in its mission to support the needy and underprivileged.

The school is widely acknowledged as providing outstanding levels of pastoral care which are based on a secure knowledge of the unique talents of individual students. We rely on and receive excellent levels of support from our parents in our drive to help our students develop into rounded, caring and active citizens. Our core values are Christ-centred and reflect the traditional standards respected within our communities. In particular, we endeavour to produce young people who show respect for themselves and each other; tolerance, courtesy and a high regard for those less fortunate than themselves. Because of this, our students are bright, cheerful, highly motivated and show outstanding attitudes to learning.
