Headteacher’s Welcome

On behalf of all of the children, staff, and governors, we would like to warmly welcome you to St. Margaret Clitherow Catholic Voluntary Academy.

​​At St. Margaret’s we believe that every child is special and that ‘the child is at the centre of everything we do.’  At the heart of our school is our Catholic faith and we strive to ensure that the children develop spiritually and morally as well as academically, physically, socially and creatively.

​We strive to be a place where children are happy and enjoy their learning in a safe and secure environment.  We are committed to developing the talents and skills of every child to enable them to achieve the best that they can.  We also wish to nurture their spiritual and personal development so that they will grow in their understanding of our mission statement, ‘Love one another as I have loved you’  (John 13:34-35) and become caring and responsible citizens.

​We hope this website will give you an insight into our school. We are a school and church community whose mission statement calls to:

“Love one another as I have loved you.” – John 13:34-35

​We strive to live out the Gospel values of respect, honesty, and truth in our daily lives.
