Headteacher’s Welcome


Welcome to the John F Kennedy Catholic School (JFK) website. I hope the information it contains will give you a flavour of our school.

JFK is a successful school with a real sense of purpose. At the heart of our endeavours is our very understanding of the word 'education' - its Latin derivation meaning 'to draw out'. It is our task to draw out the potential in each person to the full. This means maximising the academic achievements as well as the personal and spiritual development of all our young people.

The core purpose of our school is summed up by our Mission Statement, which challenges all in our community to inspire, to achieve and to serve. Our aim is to provide the very best secondary education possible by inspiring our students with a love of learning within a safe, happy and friendly community. 

We place great emphasis on achievement, believing that all students should strive for personal excellence in every aspect of school life. As a Catholic school, JFK is itself inspired by the person of Christ and we are guided by the Gospel values. In particular, as we help to prepare our students for life in the adult world, we encourage all in our community to be of service to others.

If you would like to see our school in action, please feel free to make an appointment. Visitors are always welcome.
