News from the Headteacher

Dear Parents and Carers

What an amazing year we have just had with our ‘Year of Celebration’ acknowledging the opening of our outstanding new college site. From our official opening ceremony, to public speaking competitions, to our celebration masses, to our music, dance, fashion and drama shows, to our sporting tournaments, our new facilities proved to be outstanding. I’m sure many of you attended some of the events to see the amazing talents of so many of our students.

Archbishop Beck Catholic Sports College is now the fourth most over-subscribed school in the city. It is a school of choice and our local community are very proud of their local school. One of the difficulties, however, is that over 50 students who wanted to join our community were unable to do so. At post-16 over 300 students now attend Archbishop Beck, many as part of our basketball, football and dance academies.

Can I congratulate all our students for their successes during their summer examinations. Many students achieved excellent results, leading to the large numbers in the sixth form and a many moving on to University to further their studies.

Can I ask you all to keep all the Archbishop Beck Catholic Sports College in your thoughts and prayers as we start a new academic year.

Paul Dickinson
