Transition into Secondary


Welcome to Bolton St Catherines Academy


I am delighted that your child has been offered a place at BSCA. This is an exciting time as they embark on the next stage of their education.

This is the start of a more independent time for them and we have a team of staff in place to help and support you and your child through the next 5 to 7 years.

Our values can be summarised as:

  • Respect
  • Compassion
  • Community
  • Peace

It is through these values that we will build on the progress we have made. We will continue to develop the mind set and culture within the Academy so that every member of our community, students and staff strives 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

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


To make your start at Bolton St. Catherine’s Academy a smoother process here is some information you will find useful -

Welcome booklet – giving you important information about the Academy, the standards we aim for and the extras we provide.

Agreements and Permissions Request Booklet – gives you information about the agreements and permissions we require with students, parents/carers and the Academy. This would need to be completed and handed in at our main office.
