Catholic Life

On this page you will find anything the school and children take part in throughout the year to support charities and other events which support the Ethos we follow.
St Philip’s school provides an outstanding quality of Catholic education. The outcomes for pupils, the provision for Catholic education, the effectiveness of leaders and managers and the school’s capacity for sustained improvement are outstanding in most areas. The school continues to build on previously outstanding performance and its capacity for sustained improvement is also outstanding. (quote from the Section 48 report below).
