Introduction to All Saints
Welcome to All Saints Catholic College.

Dear Parent/Carer,

All Saints Catholic College enjoys a unique status as a faith community that exists
to meet the needs of those who seek Catholic education within Huddersfield and
the surrounding areas.

Our distinct Catholic status challenges us with the mission to help our students to
recognise Christ as the centre of our community. We aim to live the Gospel so
that our students learn to love and serve God, themselves and others. This is the
distinctiveness we celebrate and continue to develop in partnership with our
families, parishes, feeder schools, the Leeds Diocese and the wider community.

We have many plans for our students this year and I am confident that you will
support and encourage your child to seize every opportunity to get involved in all
our activities. Participation in these events will enhance their academic
development and lead to a broader, and very satisfying, educational experience.

We encourage and value the support of our parents/carers and are keen to work
in positive partnership with you. We would invite you to contact us without
hesitation if you have any concerns regarding your child’s progress.

Ms K Colligan

Introduction to All Saints
Thanks from All Saints Catholic College

The Year 7 Team would like to acknowledge the work and support of all the staff
at the primary schools, and you as parents, who have prepared the students for
their transfer to All Saints Catholic College this September.

We have benefited from having regular contact with our feeder primary schools.
The Headteachers and staff have worked closely with us and communicated
student information. We would like to thank all involved for supporting and
engaging in our remote transition offer.

The circumstances around school closure are unprecedented. Support from all
has allowed us to ensure we have been able to liaise with schools, staff, families
and students. These partnerships are key to ensuring a successful transfer to All
Saints and schools and families working together.

We look forward to meeting with you over the coming months.
