Welcome to St Paul`s Catholic School

to St Paul`s, an environment where love and service enable the members of the school community to do the best that is possible.

A Community where Christ is present

St Paul's exists as a distinct community because it has Christ as its foundation. His teaching and example are the basis for its daily life, relationships and future hopes. It should be possible to meet Christ in all aspects of the life of the school and the spiritual dimension should underpin all its work:-

The example of service that Christ gave us when he washed his disciples' feet at the Last Supper should be what guides each person in the management of the staff and pupils for whom they have a special responsibility. Management in the school must reflect its Christian nature by putting the welfare and development of pupils and staff first and so putting Christ's example into practice.

Personal Relationships
The twin themes of love of God and love of neighbour should guide every member of the community, both pupils and staff. We should be a spiritual and not just a religious community so we can show our love of God through our relationship with him. It is through the respect, concern and care shown by all members of the school for each other, whether pupils and staff, that we can see love of neighbour in practice.

Spiritual Development
St Paul's should provide a setting where the faith of pupils and staff can mature. Our prayer and liturgy should enable pupils and staff to find a greater knowledge of and closer relationship to God, and the practical circumstances of daily life should be used to help us develop our consciences and moral judgement. It should be a setting where pupils and staff are allowed the freedom and opportunity to think about and develop their own principles and attitudes in the light of the teaching of Christ and his Church.

One of the early Church Fathers said: "The glory of God is each person fully alive." The curriculum at St Paul's should encourage excellence and achievement through the breadth of opportunity available, the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom and the motivation that comes from good relationships between staff and pupils. Each pupil is equally important and this should be reflected in the curriculum where all pupils should be encouraged to achieve their potential, and have their achievements recognised and praised.

All members of St Paul's should be encouraged to fulfill their ministry and use their talents to the full so that they can bring Christ to each other and to the wider community of the school.

A Community from which Christ is taken to others

St Paul's cannot be a community in isolation. Its members must go out to play their full role in the local church and bring their distinctive influence to bear on the community of Milton Keynes.

All pupils at St Paul's should be helped and prepared for the roles they can play in the community outside the school. They will be helped to develop the qualities of personal responsibility and commitment as well as the knowledge and skills which will equip them for later life.

We must look forward so that we can prepare pupils now for the changes and challenges that the wider world will present in their adult lives whether in the world of work, in the areas of moral and social issues or in the Church. They will be better able to bring Christ into all aspects of their lives and influence others by their example.

It is our responsibility to prepare all pupils so that they can fulfill their ministry in the Church and the wider world now and in the future. By taking Christ to others by their work and example they will be the leaven which helps to establish the Kingdom of God.



Love one another as I have loved you, so shall all men know you are my brothers, that you love one another

This is what sets St. Paul's apart, that as members of God's family through baptism we recognise our call to love and to service.

Consequently, each member of the school undertakes to maintain the highest standards of courtesy, co-operation and honesty working to the best of our ability to enable us to grow into our full potential.

At St Paul's we recognise the right of every individual to be safe at all times and accept the responsibility of ensuring that we never cause a person to feel unsafe by our actions or by our failure to act.

It is impossible to list all those standards of behaviour expected of the members of our school.

Clearly anything against the law is forbidden, including:

  • threatening behaviour or physical violence
  • vandalism or theft of property
  • use of any illegal substance
  • racist or sexist behaviour
  • leaving litter
  • truancy

The governors, parents, staff and pupils of St. Paul's School have been involved in devising this Code of Conduct and every individual is expected to act in accordance with the principles laid down.

We show our concern for others in the way in which we act.

It is the responsibility of each one of us to:

Worship together

  • in morning assembly
  • subject teachers lead prayers at the end of the day
  • form tutors ensure the morning and afternoon session begins with a prayer

Be forgiving

  • we forgive others and we are ready to be forgiven

Be considerate

  • respecting others, making sure our actions cannot hurt or cause offence
  • making sure we avoid shouting or bad language

Be responsible

  • recognising the way we affect our school community by our behaviour
  • accepting responsibility for our actions and being reliable

Be punctual and ready for lessons

  • arrive on time
  • have the necessary materials for each class

Respect the environment

  • clear up after lessons, breaks and lunch
  • avoid damage to furniture, buildings, trees, shrubs, etc
  • do not drop litter

Move in an orderly way

  • avoid running or pushing
  • take care that bags are held in such a way they are not a danger to others
  • hold doors open for people
  • use paths

Take pride in our appearance

  • avoid absurd extremes in hairstyles or fashion
  • follow the appropriate dress code

Responsibility of Teachers

It is the responsibility of the teachers to:

  • negotiate positively with pupils
  • ensure lessons are well prepared and appropriate for the needs of their pupils
  • set and mark homework and to assess pupils' work regularly
  • show pupils that their work is appreciated and their achievement is recognised through appropriate comments, credits, display, referrals, etc
  • maintain an orderly atmosphere in the classroom

Responsibility of Pupils

It is the responsibility of pupils to:

  • bring correct equipment for each class
  • to ask for help when they need it
  • complete all classwork and homework to the best of their ability
  • be prepared to work with any member of the group
  • accept advice from their teacher
  • be obedient and wait their turn


Pupil Grouping

Each pupil joining St Paul's will be placed in a mixed ability tutor group. The Form Tutor will have an overview of the pupils' general progress through the school. It is important that any communication with the school initially goes to the Form Tutor.

We firmly believe that the relationships which develop within the Tutor Group both with the pupils and with the Form Tutor are vital to the happiness, security and personal development of each individual.

We would hope that each pupil will feel that they have a fundamental role to play in ensuring that their tutor group makes a positive and effective contribution to the life of St Paul's and that they will adopt a sense of pride in the overall success of each activity which the group undertakes both socially and academically.

The tutor groups are named after Saints of the Universal Church:

St Angela Merici - The first founder of a teaching order for girls.

St Benedict - The founder of monasticism within which so much learning has been preserved down the ages, and in honour of Cardinal Hume, a member of the Benedictine order.

St Charles Borromeo - The model of a diocesan bishop, and in honour of the late Bishop Grant.

St Elizabeth of Hungary - A mother who devoted herself to the care of the poor and the sick.

St Hilda of Whitby - The Foundress of Whitby Abbey with a zeal for education and learning.

St Maximilian Kolbe - A saint of our time and a model of Christian courage.

St Thomas More - Englishman, scholar, statesman and Saint.

St John Neumann - A pioneer founder of the church in America who was involved in founding over fifty schools.

St Martin de Porres - Spent his whole life serving the poor. Patron Saint of international racial justice, relations and harmony.

St Rose of Lima - Her love of God led her to attempt to make reparation for sin and corruption in secular society.

St Catherine of Siena - A Doctor of the Church. A person of great personal faith and holiness who was a leader in the Church of her time.

St Teresa of Avila - A nun of exceptional learning and holiness who also took a full part in public life.

St John Vianney - Patron saint of all parish clergy in honour of the priests in our parishes.

Leading each team of form tutors is a Year Leader, who has overall responsibility for the pupils in a particular year group. This team will move on with the year group.


All pupils are encouraged to take part in the many activities and visits provided so that they can enjoy a full and active life in the school.


There is a wide range from which to choose at lunchtime and after school, including boys’ and girls’ football, netball, hockey, athletics, rugby, cricket, trampolining, gym and dance. St Paul's prides itself on encouraging as many pupils as possible to become involved. An inter-form competition takes place during the year at lunchtimes and after school. The highlights of the year are perhaps cross country, swimming galas and Sports Day. Individual pupils and school teams have met with regular success within Milton Keynes and also competing at a national level.


Choral and instrumental music is well established; a number of our pupils receive specific instrumental instruction. The music department has also established a thriving jazz orchestra, string group and wind group. Pupils are encouraged to display their skills at lunchtime and evening concerts throughout the year.


There are opportunities for pupils to develop their skills in the areas of drawing, painting, printing and sculpting and to gain a fuller understanding of the working techniques and methods involved.

Foreign Visits

Exchange visits to Germany, France and Italy have been arranged in the past for pupils of appropriate ages. Day trips to France and Sixth Form work experience in Germany are also offered. The opportunities presented are keenly taken up by pupils and staff. These trips give the pupils a better appreciation of the language and culture of the host country.

School Productions

The school has a tradition of large scale productions which give an opportunity for the multi-faceted skills inherent in the Theatre to be developed. There are opportunities to take part in school productions each year. Pupils can participate as actors, singers, dancers, musicians and backstage in props, scenery and costume making and make-up design. Recent productions include “Noye’s Fludde”, “Trojan Women” and “Bugsy Malone”.


The Drama Department is very active in promoting extra curricular performance in the community. Pupils have performed at the City Church, at Stantonbury Theatre and in Assemblies and as part of the PSHE Programme in tutorial lessons. This is currently in development and it is hoped that over the next year pupils from St Paul's will perform in the feeder schools.

A-level Drama pupils are regularly taken to the theatre in London and Northampton and participate in workshops run by professional theatre practitioners.

Subject areas are grouped in five faculties:

Faculty of Religious Education and Humanities

Faculty of Mathematics and Science

Faculty of Communication and Design
