The English Martyrs School and Sixth Form College

Catcote Road Hartlepool Co. Durham TS25 4HA

“The English Martyrs School and Sixth Form College is an expanding 11-18 mixed voluntary aided Catholic High School which has an excellent reputation throughout the area. There are 1760 students on roll including 380 in our thriving Sixth Form.  The school is oversubscribed every year.  There are currently 123 full time equivalent members of the teaching staff and 67 members of the support staff.  The school serves the entire Catholic community of Hartlepool and our catchment area encompasses the whole of Hartlepool LA.  As a result we have a genuinely comprehensive intake which is one of the great strengths of the school. The school exists to educate students in the Catholic faith in the widest sense and is committed to represent Christian family values.  Its primary aim recognises that it is a faith community, believing that each individual in it is on a pilgrimage of growth.  As a Christian community the school tries to embody Gospel values of love, justice, forgiveness and reconciliation.  Decisions concerning the curriculum and relationships will be based on these values.  The Governors will expect applicants to contribute to the development and maintenance of this ethos.”
