Welcome to Bishop Douglass School

We are a thriving secondary school in East Finchley, determined to achieve the best for the students in our charge.  We have high expectations of achievement for all. As a Catholic community, we strive to uphold strong spiritual and moral values, both in and outside the classroom.   Our philosophy is inclusive; we stretch our most able and support those with special and additional needs.  We want to ensure that all have the opportunities they need to fulfil their potential.



    Dear Parents,


    The Met Office has warned that weather will be volatile over the forthcoming days and there may be a chance of snow.  If there is snow on the ground, you are requested to keep your children at home and check our website for updates. Many of our staff travel long distances to get to school and I would not want children to be unsupervised due to a failure of staff to arrive.  We would of course open the school as soon as possible.


    Thank you for your understanding.


    Best regards,   

    Martin Tissot
