On behalf of all our staff and the Academy Committee, we welcome you to Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School.
There have been Catholic schools on the site at Potters Green Road since 1958, which were built to serve the rapidly expanding Catholic community in the area after the Second World War. Cardinal Wiseman is a unique school with international links in Europe and Malawi. It is an active member of the Romero Academy within our seven partner primary schools which helps all young people to succeed in their learning from the age of 2-19. Staff at the school work incredibly hard to provide a safe and happy learning environment for every young person so that they can develop a love of learning as they prepare for an active working life.
We want to provide every opportunity for your child to develop their talents. Everybody can excel at something, whether in lessons or in the the wide range of extra-curricular activities offered at Cardinal Wiseman.
As our school badge says “Omnia pro Christo“, everything we do has Christ placed at the centre, whether in lessons, charity work or through the development of personal faith.
The core aim of our school is to provide every pupil with a Compass for Life. We aim to provide an outstanding academic and pastoral education which will allow all pupils to acquire the skills needed to guide them through the challenges that they will face during their school life and beyond. Our Compass for Life has been built upon the four core values of the school; Knowledge, Ambition, Resilience, and Respect, which are the foundation of all the strategic and operational decisions made within the school. By focusing upon these core values, we believe we can support our young people as they take on the challenges of living as a Christian in the 21st Century.
