We are delighted to share our Catholic Schools Inspection report, we would like to thank our staff and school community for all their hard work and support in helping us achieve our overall “Good” rating and being classed as “Outstanding” for our Catholic life and mission and Collective worship.

Key findings of the report:

  • The integrity and passion of all leaders, including governors, are tangible at St John Houghton. This is a popular school which holds Christ at its heart.
  • The exceptional Catholic ethos permeates all areas of school life.
  • The religious education department is at the forefront of the current progress and developments in teaching and learning at the school.
  • Chaplaincy provision is a shining beacon within the school. The approach to collective worship reflects the passion and engagement of the lay chaplain and school leaders and ensures that prayer remains a key focus of daily life for all students, staff and parents.
  • Engagement with the community, through ‘Faith in Action’, parish work, the development of the eco garden and regular coffee mornings, is a strength which is to be commended and celebrated.
