Head Teacher's Message

Welcome to the St Bernadette Catholic Secondary School website.

At St Bernadette’s we pride ourselves on being a vibrant faith community and an ambitious learning community, where everyone is valued and has a part to play. Strong, caring relationships, high expectations and making the most of every opportunity are key features of our school.

We are committed to every child achieving their potential and becoming a confident life-long learner. Our students achieve well. In our school students also grow and develop through the love and teachings of Christ, becoming responsible citizens able to make a positive contribution in society.

We want our students to enjoy school, to learn and love learning, to have fun, make friends and grow in awareness of those around them. We also want them to work hard and experience success across a range of subjects and school experiences.

I hope our website gives you a good impression of life at St Bernadette’s and that you will see that we offer a quality education within a caring Christian environment where your child will be known and nurtured.

Best wishes

 
Basia McLaughlin
Headteacher
