I am delighted to introduce our school to you and hope that this prospectus helps to explain what makes Bishop Hedley Catholic High School such a special place. Choosing the best school for your son or daughter is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. I trust that this website will give you an informative and inspiring insight into our values, expectations and Christian ethos.
Bishop Hedley Catholic High School can help your child to grow in faith, knowledge and hope. Our school is committed to Catholic values and the highest academic standards. Our aim is very simple: we want our students to look back on their time at school with a sense of pride and achievement. We want them to have developed new skills and to be lifelong learners who will be confident, sensitive and caring citizens who make a positive contribution to society. I hope that this prospectus gives you an insight into the high expectations that pervade all areas of school life.
2017 has seen the school consolidate its position as a Welsh Government Green-rated School, in Standards Group 1. This is the highest possible group and sees our school ranked amongst the best in Wales. At Key Stage 3, the school is ranked in Quartile 1 (the top 25% of schools in Wales) for all subjects except one.
To fully appreciate our Catholic ethos and our committed learning community. I would urge you to visit the school either at one of our formal events or at any other convenient time. Bishop Hedley Catholic High School looks forward to welcoming you and to helping fulfil the promise that you have already seen in your child.
