Dear Parents and friends of Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College, welcome to our college website. We are a Catholic community of aspiration, dedicated to all our students excelling spiritually and academically in our college and beyond. At Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College everything we do is “For the Greater Glory of God.” Our vision is that all members of our community play their part in making the world a better place. In order for society to flourish we must strive to be people of good character as described by our college virtues.
We change lives through our culture of high standards and expectations of everyone who learns and works in our school and a belief that achievement is for all. When visitors come to our college they regularly comment on three things – our distinctive Catholic ethos, how forward thinking we are and how well we focus on the really important aspects of our students’ education. We are an inclusive community and we aim to live our lives in the image of Christ as far more than merely words on a page.
We are very proud of our students and their achievements in all aspects of college life. Our academic performance is consistently high. Our success is based on ensuring every child is known, high expectations of everything we do and a relentless focus on outstanding teaching. Not surprisingly, our academic results and standards have ensured the school is extremely popular with parents and the school is oversubscribed every year with a high demand for places.
As you look through this website I hope you will get a flavour of the ambitious, forward thinking, successful and vibrant community that is Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College.
