Welcome to Blessed George Napier Catholic School and Sixth Form Specialist Sports College
We are a Catholic school and, as such, we are deeply aware of the unique nature of each individual and the purpose that each one of us has in bringing about the Kingdom of God. Providing a first class education for all our pupils, so that they can use their talents and skills for the good of others, is very much part of our Christian mission.
In our March 2012 inspection, Ofsted commented: “It is a friendly, supportive community, in which students feel safe and well cared for. The school promotes students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development exceptionally well” and “The senior leadership team demonstrates a shared ambition to enable all students to succeed both academically and personally.” In the same report Ofsted referred to a student’s comment: “We are really just one big family who get on well together.” In May 2012, our Diocesan Inspection stated: “Pupils contribute in an excellent manner to building the character of a school to which they are obviously very proud to belong” and “There is serious commitment to learning.”
At KS5 our A Level results were good with 56% of students being awarded an A*, A or B grade at A Level. This year our AS results were extremely good, with a pass rate of 92%. As a result, the average total UCAS points score for our students continues to be significantly above the national average, something that gives our students a real advantage when applying to Higher Education institutions. We are delighted that all who left the Sixth Form went into education, employment or training and many are now attending Russell Group universities and some of the most prestigious academic institutions in the country. They are a credit to themselves, their families and to the BGN community.
We have a history of strong GCSE results. There is still turbulence nationally with GCSE results. However, we achieved 61% A*-C including English and Maths, with 80% of our children achieving 5 A*-C. This is due to the hard work and dedication of all our staff and students.
BGN is a thriving school where laughter is often heard and respect of each individual is regularly demonstrated. Our Catholic faith is the source from which we draw our strength and the root of all our success.
May God continue to bless this very special school.
