About Us

In Jesus’ way we

learn, live and pray. 

 

Welcome to the Federation of All Saints and St Margaret’s. We are a thriving and active Catholic school community in Glossop.

It is our aim for each and every child who joins us to find enjoyment, happiness, friendship and fulfillment throughout their days with us. We will strive to uncover the talents, interests and God- given gifts of each child; get to know them and understand them as individuals and build a curriculum around them that is rich and engaging.
 Our schools are set within fantastic environments that encompasses both large open green spaces, we are fortunate to be able to offer our pupils the ideal place to learn, explore, play and grow.
 We would encourage you to visit our schools, speak to staff, meet our children and see our wonderful schools in action. Please enjoy browsing our website and we hope that it gives you a taste of what life here in the Federation is like! Thank you for taking an interest in our school.

We are a Catholic Voluntary Academy and a member of the St. Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi Academy Trust of the Diocese of Nottingham. All Saints and St Margaret’s Catholic schools were federated in April 2014. On the 1st September, 2018 all schools within the Diocese became part of the Catholic Multi Academy Trust, there are now four CMAT’s within the Diocese of Nottingham.
We are served by one governing body and both our schools work in close partnership together. Our mission in serving the local Catholic parishes of All Saints & St Mary’s, St Margaret’s and the Immaculate Conception Broadbottom, is to offer Catholic education, spiritual and moral teaching to the children in our care.
Religious education lies at the core of everything that we do. We devote 10% of curriculum time to the teaching of RE and follow the ‘Come and See’ scheme from Reception to Year 6. We also explore and express our faith through other subjects including Art, Drama, Music, Science and Literacy.
Collective acts of worship for the whole school take place three times a week and in individual classes on the remaining two days. Our parish priests are regular visitors to school and there are many occasions throughout the year when we celebrate Mass together as a whole school or individual year groups. In addition to this, prayer is important at all times both collectively and individually.
