High quality care, support and guidance underpin the Christ the Word Catholic School’s ethos. Expert teachers and support staff encourage learners, giving them the opportunity to reach their full potential, both academically and personally. The superb new building and excellent facilities for learning create a vibrant and supportive environment.

Parents and carers who apply for a place for their child are aware that this is a faith school where learning is based on Catholic principles and values. We expect all students to support the school’s faith ethos and to fully support all the religious and other activities at the school.

We expect families who attend our school to respect and support the aims and ethos of the school. We welcome families who are not of the catholic faith but who wish their children to have a faith education to apply and be considered for a place.

If you wish to transfer your child from another school, you need to apply for a change of schools. If the change is not related to a house move, ​ speak to your child’s current Headteacher first . ​ We cannot guarantee that we can offer a place unless there is space in the requested year group.

Contact the school and arrange to meet the Headteacher and have a tour of our school
