Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College

WELCOME to Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College, Worcester. Our web site provides information and an insight into our college for prospective pupils and parents. The web site will allow you to explore the achievements of our pupils and the diversity in their experiences while at our college.

We are a Catholic college committed to 'Gospel Values and Personal 'Achievement. We believe that our college should reflect the values and practice of a good Catholic home. However we are inclusive and many of our pupils are from other Christian and World Faiths. We believe in the uniqueness of each pupil and firmly believe that each child wants to be successful at school.

We are very proud of our pupils' academic achievements. The college has been presented with the “School Achievement Award” by the DfES for substantial improvements in results achieved by our pupils between 1997 and 2001. Improvement continues and the college in 2006 obtained record results with 72% of pupils achieving 5 or more higher level GCSE. This year, 2007, pupils at the College again achieved record results. 80% of pupils achieved 5+ A*-C grades, 44%(91) pupils achieved 12+ higher level passes and 61%(125) of pupils achieved 9+ higher level passes. The College is rated as a 'Category 1 School' by the Local Authority.

We have been awarded Arts Mark Gold, Leading Aspects Awards for the appreciation of other cultures through Modern Foreign Languages and the development of citizenship through Faith and liturgy, two Awards for All for Girls’ Rugby and martial arts and the FA Charter for Schools. This autumn term we became a Worcester Wolves Basket-ball academy. We are an Investor in People college and an Accredited Test Centre for the European Computer Driving Licence. We have recently been awarded the Geographical Association Geography Mark and the BECTA ICT Kitemark. The "Healthy School Status" acknowledges the high quality of care, support and guidance provided for our pupils.

We hope this website gives you a clear picture of the many achievements, curriculum and activities at our school. If you do have any suggestions on the information covered or perhaps additional information you would like to see, please contact Mr. Edmunds, our Director of I.C.T, or myself

We look forward to another successful year with even greater opportunities for our pupils to engage in different activities and to be constantly challenged and supported.
