Our Mission Statement

At The Cathedral Catholic School we are safe and cared for; we make Christ known and loved, using his example to strive for excellence in all we do. In close partnership with parents and the parish of The Cathedral and St Thomas More, we aim to deliver an outstanding and distinctive Catholic education with Christ at its heart. Each person’s unique value is recognised and nurtured so that, through God’s grace we can grow, learn and realise our full potential. We use our gifts and talents for the glory of God and in the loving service of others, proclaiming the Gospel and striving for the values of the Kingdom of God. We profess our faith proudly and recognise that we are called to a loving relationship with God through the sacraments, scripture and prayer.


The peace, joy and love of Christ is at the very heart of all that we do in our school. Through religious education, school policy and, primarily, our culture of prayerfulness, charity and joy, we seek to share the Gospel with the people of Lancaster and the wider world.


Our school is part of St Peter’s Cathedral & St Thomas More parish and The Diocese of Lancaster. Our Bishop is Paul Swarbrick who was installed as the Bishop of Lancaster in April 2018.
