Welcome to Saint Gregory's Catholic College
Welcome to the website of Saint Gregory’s Bath.
Saint Gregory’s is a high performing, oversubscribed, 11-18 co-educational Catholic school which was once again rated Outstanding by Ofsted in 2013. Our most recent inspection by Clifton Diocese also rated us as an Outstanding Catholic school.
After twelve years in headship, I have come to the view that there is a relatively short list of things which any successful school needs to keep getting right: quality of teaching leading to excellent results for students, very high expectations of behaviour to create a calm and happy school, a very good pastoral system to care for students and their needs, and a range of enrichment activities to engage and motivate students and contribute to their wider education. We will continue to focus relentlessly on these things to ensure that Saint Gregory’s provides an outstanding education for its students.
Every school in the country with high ambitions for its young people would probably say the same, but we have a distinctive foundation or inspiration for our pursuit of excellence: our Catholic Christian values, based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which regards every person as a unique creation of God with an ‘original gift’ to offer the world.
Our aim is to help our students to discover the person they are called to be.
We promote student safety and well-being with ongoing investment in better facilities for pupils. We have created a safe and attractive ‘piazza’ area in the heart of the College, sponsored by the Parents, Teachers and Friends Association. There have been other considerable improvements to College facilities in recent years. For example, the education and wellbeing of students was greatly enhanced with the opening of the Kelly Block, a state of the art 12-classroom teaching block. The provision for dance and drama was improved with the opening of the Gilchrist Studio and our sports and leisure provision was greatly enhanced with the completion of a new all-weather pitch with facilities for football, tennis and athletics.
Music is well serviced with specialist classrooms and practice rooms for individual tuition in a huge range of instruments, including singing and voice. In addition, all classrooms have interactive white boards which have opened up new learning opportunities for the students. We installed a new sound and light system in the main hall that not only provides top quality audio and lighting equipment for performances and assemblies, but provides music in the reception, hall area and piazza.
We have recently completed a three-year project to replace all the windows in the College which has greatly improved not only the appearance of the College but the comfort and heat efficiency of the classrooms.
