The vision we and our students have for Catholic education opens the possibilities, for all members of our family, of living a fulfilled life through realising the Glory of God in everything we do.

In practice this means we insist upon excellence from everyone in all aspects of school life both inside and outside the classroom. We are a community of Learners committed to Gospel values.

"I have come that they may have life and have it to the full." John 10:10.

Our excellent reputation, which is built on good exam results consistently above local and national averages is a result of the way we structure learning and pastoral support. This allows us to know each child as an individual, enabling them to realise their God-given potential. As a Catholic Academy and as part of a wider family of Catholic schools through Our Lady of Doncaster Trust, we have greater freedom to support this.

We place significant value on preparing our students for a rapidly changing world. They are our future; we must give them the all-round skills and values to contribute to that world. The teaching of the Catholic Church provides the basis for this preparation. We welcome Catholic families, those of other faiths as well as those who are still on that faith journey.

This website will tell you more about our school and the unique way we aim to offer a distinctive Catholic educational experience. I hope you find it both informative and interesting and that it helps you to make the right choice for your child’s future.

Catholic schools are unique and distinctive. McAuley is unique and distinctive amongst other Catholic schools but, of course, the best way to find out what we’re really like is to visit us.
