Every child is known and loved



St Gregory’s School understands the importance of Personal Growth and the skills required to allow young people to be given the best opportunities to develop and demonstrate a wide range of personal skills.

  • Communication
  • Citizenship and Community
  • Sport and Leisure
  • Independent Living

The Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE) is a nationally recognised qualification available at Level 1 for our GCSE students. The qualification offers imaginative ways of accrediting young people's activities. It promotes, and allows learners with a wide range of personal qualities, abilities and achievements, as well as introducing them to new activities and challenges. This course provides our students who may struggle with Level 2 qualifications an additional qualification to support them in their future learning.

Our Values

Ambition Rooted firmly in Catholic teachings, we aim to nurture and guide our students to fulfil their God-given potential so they may achieve success.

Leadership We strive to be a community of servant leaders, where individuals gain a clear sense of self and purpose, knowing their values and using these to guide how they enrich the community in which they belong.

Integrity We teach our students to value honesty and have strong moral principles, using their discernment to govern their actions and take responsibility for their choices.

Vigour Inspired by the life of St Gregory, we empower our students to work with vigour, so they approach all activities and opportunities with effort, energy and enthusiasm.

Empathy We aim for our students to understand and value the feelings of others and for them to know they are loved and celebrated irrespective of their differences.
