ISI Inspection Report 2016

Our mission is to be a nationally recognised school that serves its local area by creating an inclusive school community devoted to Christian ideals of learning, raising the aspirations of each of its members and fulfilling their potential in body, mind and spirit.

Lichfield Cathedral School is a flourishing community based on the values of learning, leadership, faith and service, whose purpose is to serve the interests of all our pupils. Here every child matters and our pupils have, both individually and collectively, a real sense of pride in their school.

The School’s educational philosophy is rooted in an understanding that each pupil has different talents and distinct qualities. Our primary focus is to nurture these talents, instil a love of learning and educate in the broadest possible sense.

We offer a wide range of opportunity. Every pupil is encouraged to choose their own pathway, informed by his or her interests and ambitions. They are encouraged to perform to the best of their ability, academically as well as outside the classroom.

Choosing the right school for your child can be a difficult process and you are strongly encouraged to visit us to get a true picture of what makes our school so special.

“The pupils’ strong spiritual development is encouraged by the Christian ethos of the school and their exploration of Christian values… Through music and drama performances and art displays, pupils express a mature understanding of a world beyond the physical and become increasingly self-aware.  The moral development of the pupils is excellent.  Pupils relate extremely well to each other, across all ages.  Respect is evident in all relationships throughout the school.  Pupils display high levels of courtesy, maturity and consideration for each other.”
