Welcome from the Head Teacher

Thank you for taking the time to visit The Becket School’s website.

The Becket School is first and foremost a Catholic school, aiming to provide a first class Catholic education for all our students. We set everything we do within Christian values and look to follow the example of Christ in all our work.

We believe that a successful Catholic education develops students academically, socially and spiritually, giving them the skills to be successful in whatever they do once they have left us. We are forward looking while embracing traditional values and focus constantly on improving the quality of Learning and Teaching within our school.

Secondary education represents a major stage in the life of each young person and so we aim to work together with parents, carers, parishes and the local community to support the young people; enabling them to develop and grow within this community and in building together a real sense of identity within The Becket School.

We strive relentlessly for high academic standards and the pursuit of excellence in all of our work; our traditions and our reputation, earned over many years, reflect this. Our dedicated colleagues, our encouragement of a positive attitude to learning, our high expectations and our setting of all of our work in Christian values have contributed to our consistent success. We are not, however, content to rest on our laurels but should always look to seize the opportunity to make a real contribution to whole school effectiveness.

I am proud of The Becket School and pleased to recommend it to you. As a Catholic school we recognise the equal value of each individual pupil and we aim to provide the best possible opportunities for your child. We look forward to welcoming you to our community.
