Welcome from Our Interim Headteacher

I feel extremely proud and excited to have been appointed as the new Interim Headteacher of St Chad’s Catholic and Church of England High School.  I look forward to getting to know our school community on a personal basis over the forthcoming weeks and months.

I am committed to leading the hardworking and dedicated pupils and staff in overcoming the school’s current challenges.  This certainly would not be possible without the support from parents and carers, our strong church links and the wider community.

We are very much an inclusive Christian school, and are driven by our distinctly Christian values of Love, Respect, Charity and Community.  These values help us to ensure that every student feels an integral part of our school community and it is my wish that being part of the family of St. Chad’s will allow all of our students to reach their full potential with pride, ambition and positivity.

Mr J Forber

Interim Headteacher
