Saint Margaret Clitherow’s Catholic Voluntary Academy is first and foremost a family school, very proud of its strong Catholic ethos, standards and pastoral care, nurturing our young people as they continue on their faith journeys.

Our school is part of the Nicholas Postgate Catholic Academt Trust – this is a family of 26 schools, a Sixth Form and a Teaching School. We are a caring Trust, dedicated to academic excellence, and the spiritual and moral development of our pupils.

At St Margaret Clitherow’s School, we pride ourselves on being friendly and open to all. We love the boys and girls entrusted to us and take great pride in nurturing their academic, social and personal skills. Our teachers organise engaging and interesting lessons through a wide range of varied topics.

Being at SMC (our given nickname) and being part of our school family is a special place to be.

In our school we believe that ‘Jesus is at the heart of everything we do’.
