Welcome to Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College, Worcester. Our web site www.blessededward.co.uk/ provides information and an insight into our college for prospective students and parents. The web site will allow you to explore the achievements of our students and the diversity in their experiences while at our college.
We are a Catholic college committed to ‘Gospel Values and Personal Achievement’. We believe that our college should reflect the values and practice of a good Catholic home. The Gospel Values we develop, with parents, in our students are those of Love, Truth, Compassion, Holiness, Forgiveness, Justice, Sacrifice and Peace. However, we are inclusive and many of our students are from other Christian and World Faiths. These values are also integral to all faiths and under-pin British Values. We believe in the uniqueness of each student and firmly believe that each child wants to be successful at school, develop their talents and be prepared for further education and successful employment.
We are very proud of our students’ academic achievements. Their GCSE results in 2017 meant that we were once again the top school in Worcester. We are also in the top 20% of schools nationally in terms of value added. Essentially this means a significant number of our students get better GCSE grades than they are expected to.
We have a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities for students. There are numerous overseas trips, Duke of Edinburgh Award, theatre trips, a wide range of curriculum related trips as well as an extensive range of sports clubs. These opportunities are a key part of our approach to developing young people who, when they leave our school, have a keen sense of themselves and their place in the world.
We are a warm, vibrant community at Blessed Edward's and you will be very welcome if you wish to visit.
