Headteacher’s Welcome Message


I am extremely proud to introduce and welcome you to St Oscar Romero’s Catholic School.

Our aim is simple, we want to be the best school in the country. This means that we can ‘hand on heart’ say that our students get a better deal than if they attended another school.

St Oscar Romero has been on an upward trend for the last five years. This year, 86% of students achieved at least a Grade 4 (equivalent to a C grade or above) in both English and Maths and 60% of students achieved at least a Grade 5 (known as a strong pass) in both English and Maths. Departments across the school performed exceptionally well, with English, Maths and Science all securing results of 83%+ at a Grade 4+ or above.

In March 2018, we were judged by Ofsted as ‘Good’ in all categories. This report was overwhelmingly positive and confirmed the staff, governors, students and parents’ absolute commitment to reach ‘Outstanding’ within one year. This was then confirmed in our Diocesan Section 48 Inspection in July 2019, which judged the school as ‘Outstanding’ in every category. This is a first for the school and a proud moment in the school’s 65-year history.

As a Catholic School, St Oscar Romero’s is founded on Gospel values. We provide a nurturing environment of love, respect and discipline, where every individual is highly valued and our care and concern for others is central to our mission. We expect our students to work hard, behave well, dress smartly and pursue excellence in all that they do inside and outside of the classroom. Our culture is one of high expectations in all that we do.

I now invite you to experience St Oscar Romero’s Catholic School first-hand by having a tour of our school and I look forward to meeting you in the future.

Mr Byrne
