Transfer from primary school to St. Philomena's Catholic High School for Girls
DFES No: 319/5406
We welcome applications for a place at our School. In accordance with the recent guidance given by the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales, Catholic parents are encouraged to send their children to a Catholic school:-
'Catholic schools are guided in all they do by an important and coherent vision of education. This vision is based on the truth revealed by God about ourselves, our life together in community and our ultimate destiny with God...The aims of [the Catholic Church's] schools are to help everyone within the school community to grow in faith; to make the most of every ability they have been given; to achieve academic excellence and to prepare well for adult life in a modern and diverse society'
Pastoral letter from the Bishops' Conference, 2008.
