'The headteacher and deputy headteacher are committed and relentless in their work for continuous improvement.'Ofsted 2018

Welcome to St Aidan’s Catholic Academy.

We are committed to the care and success of every boy in a way that is rooted in the values of the gospel. We expect the boys to set themselves high standards in their work, their extra-curricular activities and their relationships with others. We encourage them to do so and support them so that they will achieve. We will work with you to develop your child’s gifts, whatever they may be, so that he is well prepared to take a place in the adult world confidently.

St Aidan’s has an outstanding reputation for academic achievement based on a consistent record of excellent examination results that continually improve year on year. We nurture individual students and encourage and assist each one to reach their full potential. Our personalised curriculum offers a vast range of learning opportunities. Extracurricular and enrichment programmes are extensive. These complement and extend the academic curriculum and include local and international projects, charity work and a wide range of sporting activities.

Our thriving Sixth Form greatly enhances the character of the school. The high staying-on rate from Year 11 to Year 12 is a testament to the very positive relationships which are established at St Aidan’s. Our Sixth Form students enjoy a challenging and enriching curriculum which enables the great majority to go on to further study, including Oxford and Cambridge.

With kind regards

Kevin Shepherd

Headteacher
