On behalf of the governors, staff and pupils I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to our new website at St Edmund Arrowsmith Catholic High School.
Having received a Catholic education in Wigan myself, I know how incredibly important this is to shaping your entire future. The staff and governors of St Edmund Arrowsmith Catholic High School are totally committed to providing an education rooted in Gospel values. We strive to reveal who we are by living our faith and make every effort to inspire our pupils to want to make the world a better place. The generosity of spirit in our pupils is incredible and has made a significant difference to our partner school in South Africa.
As members of our distinctively Catholic family, we are determined that every pupil feels valued and is allowed to realise his/her full potential within a safe, secure and happy environment. We set high standards for our pupils, and aim at all times to provide opportunities to develop their abilities to the full, allowing them to develop into mature and responsible citizens. We understand that your sons and daughters only get one chance at school and we are all determined that they receive a first class education, one that prepares them for the rest of their lives.
It is our firm belief that everyone is created in the image and likeness of God and through our daily interactions we are seen as a living witness to our faith in and around school and through our curriculum. We recognise academic success as one important facet of education and our teachers dedicate much time and energy in ensuring maximum progress is made. To achieve this we provide a relevant curriculum with a wide range of learning experiences to meet the differing needs of individual pupils, whilst offering equality of opportunity and high standards of teaching. We believe this holistic educative approach helps to develop our pupils’ personal, spiritual, moral and social aptitudes, which will enable him/her to mature into a kind, polite and respectful adult.
We strive to foster within each pupil a joy of learning and the recognition that education is a lifelong process in order to make a full and rewarding contribution to society.
All pupils are made welcome at St Edmund Arrowsmith and we strive to make their time in our school productive, inspiring, engaging and, most of all, happy. If you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact the school. You can arrange a personal visit if you wish; our pupils are our best advertisement and you will be sure to find a warm and courteous welcome.
