Welcome to Bolton St Catherine's Academy

I am honoured to have been chosen to lead the academy as Principal and will be in post for the rest of the academic year whilst the governors review how the academy will develop in the future.

Whilst serving as one of the Vice Principals I have been responsible mainly for pastoral care in the Academy since its formation and I am very proud to have developed a culture that has produced a well behaved and respectful student body.

My values have therefore long been part of the Academy culture and can be summarised as

• Work hard.
• Be respectful and honest.
• Value others and relationships with them.

It is through these values that we can continue to build on the progress we have made. Our Secondary and Primary schools will be oversubscribed and full again this year and not forgetting that in 2016 Ofsted judged our Primary School and Sixth Form as "Good". Our Primary school has also gained the best KS2 results of any school in the BL2 postcode area.

I will continue to develop the mind set and culture within the Academy so that every member of our community, students and staff, strive hard to make progress, taking immense pride in their effort and work.

Our students will leave us with:

• Good academic outcomes
• The Christian values of respect, tolerance and service
• A positive and enduring outlook

so that they live happy, healthy and purposeful lives – irrespective of their background or circumstances.

If you have any questions or would like to meet with me to discuss any aspect of the Academy then please contact the school.

I look forward to your support and thank you for playing your part in the continuing improvements we are seeing across the whole Academy.

Richard Senior
