Section 48 Inspection

Dear Parents, Carers and Students,

It gives me great pleasure to share with you the Archdiocese of Birmingham Section 48 Inspection Report for Stuart Bathurst Catholic High School which took place on the 4th and 5th April 2022.

Everyone associated with Stuart Bathurst can be extremely proud of this inspection judgement. The students, the staff and its leaders, supported by key members of the governing body, have made this possible through hard work and a relentless determination to provide the best possible Catholic education for our young people.

This school is on a journey of rapid improvement and to be recognised by an Archdiocese of Birmingham inspection team as ‘Outstanding’ in all three areas of the inspection framework; Catholic Life; Religious Education and Collective Worship is a wonderful achievement. The school’s mission and ethos is clearly demonstrated every single day, not just over a two day inspection. I have witnessed this first hand since September and I know that Christ’s teachings and the Gospel values we promote are at the forefront of all we do by the way our community works for each other. Today, this has been celebrated and recognised.

Please do take time to read through the report and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school.


Yours faithfully,

Mr R May
Executive Principal
