A Message from the Head
Welcome to the new website for Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School. We have decided that it would be helpful for parents and community if I wrote a regular blog to update you on life in our school. I will do my best to publish something new every week.
Firstly I congratulate our students who , with excellent results ,are off to universities such as Birmingham, Nottingham, Durham and Leicester to study a wide range of subjects including Medicine, Mathematics, Psychology and Education . Good luck to Shannon who has succeeded in getting a highly sought after apprenticeship with Jaguar Land Rover. Many GCSE candidates also have a lot to celebrate with a high number of top grades and significant improvement in pupil progress in Mathematics. In a changing national scene, our results have dipped so that fewer pupils achieved 5 A-C grades with English and Maths. However pupil progress has improved in Mathematics and triple Scientists have done very well . I will update you on figures once final grades are in.
We start a new term with many challenges but confident that, with your help as parents and an excellent team of staff, pupils will succeed in achieving their potential in a wide range of subjects. Everybody is good at something and we aim to give opportunities to develop individual talents in all our pupils. We look forward to meeting you this week when you come up for a learning conversation with your child’s tutor.
