Through Faith to Success

An Outstanding Catholic School

The Douay Martyrs
Catholic Secondary School

Founded in 1962 we are a modern, forward looking mixed school with academy status within The Diocese of Westminster Academy Trust.  We have 8 forms of entry and a 6th Form. As a Catholic school we serve the whole community of the Borough of Hillingdon and beyond, welcoming Catholic students and others who wish to join us. Our aspirational Head Teacher, Mr A J Corish, was appointed in September 2015 and is devoted to ensuring the very best education for every student, with each individual expected to perform to the best of their ability.
