Bishop Douglass Catholic School Meet our Students

  • “I applied to Bishop Douglass because I had a really good experience of the school when I was in Year 5 and 6, in primary school. I came to the school for a Football Tournament, which was brilliant fun! It was the first time I had visited a secondary school, everyone was really friendly and welcoming. I am looking forward to the next six years at Bishop Douglass.
    Shaun, Christ the King Alumni

  • "I have really enjoyed my experience so far. I have joined new clubs and taken part in shows and tournaments (Chess and Musical Theatre) and even visited Wales! Another highlight has been the new learning environment and resources – we can cook in huge kitchens, wear white lab coats and do real experiments and talk to someone about our career ambitions.”.
    Deborah, Tudor Primary School Alumni

  • “Bishop Douglass was my first-choice secondary school. I settled in very quickly in Year 7. I was joined by many friends, made even more new ones and my family have even worked and attended here themselves, so I always knew it was the right fit for me. It really is a community, everyone is so friendly and kind, and I am so happy with my decision. So far, I have already made life-long memories – from taking part in the Lion King as Simba to designing cool creations in DT, it has been so exciting”.
    George, Martin Primary School alumni 

  • “The transition programme really helped me to settle in and prepare for secondary school. From taster sessions and events to induction information and Summer School, I was ready in September for my next chapter. Belonging to this new community has been a really exciting experience, and achieving my goals too – get the highest grades I could, joining new clubs, becoming Prefect, School Council and Bertha Earth Ambassador, all of these I am so proud of. I take great joy in effecting positive change and exploring my passions, and that is exactly what this school has helped me to do”.Georgia, St Joseph’s Alumni

  • “My favourite subject is Drama, because it has helped to develop my confidence and learn new skills, and it is a very interesting, interactive and fun new subject! I look forward to pushing myself further out of my comfort zone by taking part and performing in a school production soon”.
    Zuzana, St Theresa’s Alumni
