Our History

Last updated: 05/08/2019

We are very proud of our history of Catholic comprehensive education and celebrated our 50th Anniversary during the academic year 2014–15.

Our motto has always been Sub tuo praesidio (Latin for Under your protection).

9,050 pupils have attended our school since it opened in 1964.


A historic project is ongoing to collect old school photos and memories to add to the school's own collection. 

33,000 photos are available to view online at flickr.com

If you would like to contribute your own photos or memories, please contact us. We would be delighted.
