Our Ethos

Our motto at Christ the King is: “Believe, Belong, Become” and embraces the vision for our pupils and school. We work hard to engage our pupils to believe in themselves, belong to our community in faith and strive to become the best that they can be. Pupils and staff at the school are lucky to enjoy the benefits of a brand new building offering high quality resources and outdoor space for our children to play and learn in. A unique addition to our site is our new parish church which is adjacent to our building but can be accessed from within school.

"Central to improving the lives of pupils is the care and support (school) provide(s) to children and their families. It is evidence that all school leaders and staff share this ambition". (Ofsted Inspection June 2017)

“The Catholic life of the school is good. Opportunities for prayer and liturgy are a strength of the school. Christ is at the centre of the school community and gospel values permeate everything that the school strives to achieve." (Diocesan Inspection July 2014)

The work we undertake here in Blackpool will always be challenging, but the co-operative and tireless approach of our schools, growing together over the last few years, has been fundamental to our success. We secured “good” gradings last academic year and we were among some of the highest performing schools across the town, for the Key Stage Two results in 2018. We are quite rightly very proud of the work our directors, staff and pupils have done to achieve this, but are now eager to look to the next chapter. There is, as always, much to do as we continue to be ambitious for all children to experience the very best teaching and achieving well.

Our mission  is to strive towards providing a place that is filled with fun, laughter, enjoyment and discovery. We aim to remove as many barriers to learning as possible, to ensure our pupils achieve their full potential. We are rightly very proud of these recent achievements but are now focused on our journey beyond these grades.
