Welcome to St Damian's R.C Science College
A Message from the Headteacher, Mr Logue
As the Headteacher of St Damian’s I warmly welcome you to the St Damian's website which I hope you will find very useful and full of important information. It is both an honour and a privilege to be the Headteacher of such a proud Catholic school. I am truly blessed to have an amazing staff who work tirelessly for your children so that they are given every opportunity to fulfil their true potential. This is at the heart of our Mission. Our staff are supported by very able governors, led by Mrs E Jones, who has a very long association with the school. The governors, like my great staff, work tirelessly behind the scenes to make St Damian’s the special place that it is.
There is a simple reason why I call St Damian’s ‘special’. That is down to the seamless relationships between the pupils and the staff. We pride ourselves on excellent relationships, where we work together to form a loving and caring Community, based on clear boundaries, accepted values and high expectations. Our parents overwhelmingly support the school and indeed we are very heavily over-subscribed, reflecting the confidence of the parents and the wider community.
By continuing to work together we will achieve our vision, which is simple: to become an outstanding school in all we do. There is no limit to what we, as a community, can achieve. I promise you that I will work relentlessly with staff, governors and parents to ensure that your child gets a world-class education.
Once again St Damian's hits the mark!
Recognition for our catch-up program orgainsed by Mrs Henshaw. We have been working with the Tutor Trust as part of the National Tutoring Programme. Last year 150 pupils in Yrs 7 – 9 received extra Maths and English tuition in the summer term and this year Yr7 pupils are receiving extra tuition. Well done to the pupils!
