Our aim is very simple we want to be the very best school that we can be for the benefit of the young people who choose to study here.
At The McAuley Catholic High school, we are passionate about teaching and learning. The school provides a high quality of teaching that excites, motivates and challenges all our young people. We truly believe that all members of our community are made "in the image and likeness of God" and are loved by Him. We want each of our students to recognise God in their daily lives. The values of compassion, aspiration, reconciliation, equality and stewardship (McAuley CARES) are at the heart of all that we do.
Our school supports families to educate their children in accordance with the principles and teachings of the Catholic Church. We endeavour to inspire each individual to grow and develop through the love and teaching of Christ and through nurturing their gifts and talents, into responsible citizens able to make a positive contribution to society.
Our school community strives to be Christ-centered through opportunities to celebrate the Eucharist and through the practice of our Faith. We want everyone at McAuley to experience the joy of the Gospel in their journey through school and beyond whatever their denomination or faith.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, where each student is equally valued, the uniqueness of each student is acknowledged and their abilities, aptitude and gifts are developed to the full. We encourage our pupils to demonstrate high levels of commitment and co-operation while all members of staff endeavour to provide maximum opportunities for learning and progression within a secure and safe environment.
Our educational philosophy is based strongly on a partnership where home, school, parish and the wider community work closely together to provide maximum support for the educational process and for the young people in our care.
We try to live each day by our school motto John 10:10:
'I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.'
