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.

Further to recent information I have received from the NUT and Unison, I regret that
I have taken the decision to close the school on Thursday to all pupils except those
