I am very proud to be the Headteacher of St Philip Howard Catholic School and thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
Picking the best school for your child is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make in life. The SPH community is one that we are very proud of. Where every child is ‘known and loved’, students are valued for their unique gifts, talents and personalities, where every decision we take is always in the best interests of the students entrusted to our care.
Our aim is simple, to provide the very best educational experience for your young person. In practice, this means a relentless drive for students to achieve outstanding grades – better than any your child could hope to achieve elsewhere. It means pastoral care and enrichment opportunities are second to none, where all students are ‘known and loved’ and celebrated for who they are. Understanding the importance of being a well-rounded young person, allowed to excel in their own unique way. Most importantly, placing our Catholic faith and identity at the heart of all that we say and all that we do. Our mission is to ensure children leave SPH happy, kind and confident individuals with a strong moral compass, going out into the world to make a positive difference.
Whether you are a prospective parent, member of staff or just a visitor, do please come and visit us; we´d be delighted to meet you. Every day is Open Day!
