Dear parents, carers and students,


It is with great pleasure that we are able to welcome you as a future Our Lady and St Chad’s student.  We are really pleased that you have chosen our Catholic family for your future education and we promise to do all we can to help you achieve your dreams over the next 5, or hopefully 7 years.  We hope that you are just as excited as we are to start our Year 7 adventure together.

There’s lots to do over the coming weeks and we will be in touch with you by post, email and in person.  We will be adding all information that we send out to this webpage that we hope will help you to get to know your new surroundings and give you a glimpse of all the exciting things we have waiting for you in September and beyond.

Below you will find a few documents containing information that you may find useful.  We will be updating this page regularly over the coming weeks and therefore would encourage you to visit every so often.

For now though, please try not to worry about a thing.  Starting secondary school is a big change but it is one that is exciting and full of opportunities, especially at Our Lady and St Chad’s.  We will support you wholeheartedly in the way that is suited to what you need when you need it.

Mr P. Taylor

Assistant Principal for Lower School
