Church School Inspection
All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the National Society's framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005.
SIAMS inspection focusses on the effect that the Christian ethos of the church school has on the children and young people who attend it. Church schools will employ a variety of strategies and styles, which reflect their particular local context or church tradition, in order to be distinctive and effective.
The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.
St Catherine's College completed its latest Church School Inspection in November 2023. The full report can be found at the bottom of this page.
"The Christian vision is understood and lived out throughout the college. As a result, pupils and adults thrive in this caring community that celebrates love at its core."
