Al­low­ing pupils to ful­fil their po­ten­tial and ‘truly flour­ish’

Bath Chronicle - - OPINION -

Saint Gre­gory’s is a high per­form­ing, 11-18 co-ed­u­ca­tional school rated out­stand­ing by both the Dio­cese of Clifton and Of­sted. The school has a unique ed­u­ca­tional offer that recog­nises their com­mit­ment to the young peo­ple in their care; a com­mit­ment that nur­tures and in­spires every child to ful­fil their po­ten­tial and truly flour­ish. Saint Gre­gory’s en­cour­ages stu­dents to love learn­ing, par­tic­i­pate fully in school life and em­brace the many op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able. At Saint Gre­gory’s, the per­sonal de­vel­op­ment and well-be­ing of stu­dents is para­mount with Chris­tian val­ues cen­tral to their ed­u­ca­tional pur­pose, cre­at­ing an as­pi­ra­tional, en­rich­ing and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment for all. In the day-to­day life of the school, th­ese val­ues are ev­i­dent in a strong ‘fam­ily’ at­mos­phere. The school has a well-de­served rep­u­ta­tion for aca­demic ex­cel­lence bal­anced by out­stand­ing pas­toral care and sup­port, al­low­ing stu­dents to flour­ish and develop as rounded in­di­vid­u­als. Saint Gre­gory’s takes great pride in their stu­dents’ aca­demic achieve­ments. High ex­pec­ta­tions and ex­cel­lent teach­ing and learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties cre­ate an at­mos­phere that al­lows stu­dents to at­tain out­stand­ing re­sults at GCSE and A Level, plac­ing the school amongst the high­est achiev­ing both lo­cally and na­tion­ally. The school are es­pe­cially com­mit­ted to de­vel­op­ing the skills and tal­ents of stu­dents in their spe­cialisms in per­form­ing arts and sci­ence. Many stu­dents are at­tracted to Saint Gre­gory’s for the wide range of op­por­tu­ni­ties that their spe­cialisms offer and they will con­tinue to develop th­ese ar­eas to cre­ate life-chang­ing ex­pe­ri­ences unique to life at Saint Gre­gory’s. Con­tin­ued in­vest­ment and de­vel­op­ment has re­cently ex­panded their ed­u­ca­tional offer to in­clude The New Sixth - a high qual­ity sixth form with out­stand­ing pas­toral sup­port and a wide range of en­rich­ment ac­tiv­i­ties. Through their joint post-16 pro­vi­sion, they build on the out­stand­ing aca­demic tra­di­tion of Saint Gre­gory’s to cre­ate a per­son­alised ca­reer path­way that in­spires stu­dents to­wards the best pos­si­ble out­comes and en­ables them to ac­cess their first choice univer­sity or higher level ap­pren­tice­ship. Saint Gre­gory’s is a safe and happy school in which stu­dents flour­ish. They are a Catholic school and their val­ues are ex­plic­itly Chris­tian but you do not have to be of the Catholic faith to ap­ply for a place.
