DEDICATED TO NURTURING YOUNG BRILLIANCE

St Philip Howard Catholic Voluntary Academy is an exciting place for our students to grow and develop, building an enriching love of learning and a spiritual outlook that they will carry with them through life.

I am very proud to welcome you to St Philip Howard Catholic Voluntary Academy on behalf of our students, teachers, staff and governors. Whilst the school itself has a long history in Glossop, it only became an ‘Academy’ during the Summer of 2015. Building on the strong spiritual and moral framework that has helped make the school so very popular over the years, the new academy continues to draw on the invaluable guiding hand that The Catholic Diocese of Nottingham provides.

Our newly awarded accreditation now offers us the invaluable opportunity to target our budgets and polish our own curriculum; enabling us to closely mirror the needs and aspirations of our students, ensuring they each achieve their full personal potential.

Substantial across-the-board investment is also allowing the Academy to significantly improve facilities, helping ensure that St. Philip Howard, its students and staff can look forward to a bright, exciting and successful future.

Mrs. Louisa Morris, Head Teacher
