About us - Welcome from the Head
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. I was appointed in September 2015 and am devoted to ensuring the very best education for every student, with each individual expected to perform to the best of their ability.
‘The Douay Way’ permeates the school day. There is a corporate atmosphere in which both students and staff know that they are working towards a common goal – to better themselves and become excellent citizens, in a progressive learning environment which combines traditional values with the very latest technology and learning techniques.
Staff are dedicated, motivated and determined to enable students to fulfil their potential. All pupils are treated as ‘special’ to meet both the needs of those deemed ‘Gifted and Talented’ as well as those with Special Educational Needs.
Examination results have been consistently good in recent years and we intend to build and improve upon these firm foundations with outstanding results in the future. The school is committed to ensuring a smooth transition from Primary to Secondary School and from Sixth Form to University. A programme of high profile interactive education has been established to initiate outstanding learning habits from the outset, complemented by varied extra-curricular activities. To provide balance and breadth we have introduced a range of “Deep Learning Days” to ensure all students have the opportunity not only to achieve educational qualifications but also to develop cultural and personal capital. This is a snapshot of our school! You would be very welcome to visit us, either joining us for Open days/Evening, attending the termly Headteacher "drop-in" or by appointment.
I hope you find the website useful and offer you a warm welcome to our community.
Mr A J Corish
