RE Inspection

The school was inspected by the Diocesan RE department in June 2013, which judged that Catholic Life and RE continue to be outstanding at our school.

The inspection team found that: "St Gregory’s was an outstanding school at the last inspection and it judges itself to have sustained and built on this high standard of Catholic education. The evidence from the monitoring visit agrees with and validates the school’s self-evaluation. The quality of the provision for Catholic life and collective worship is outstanding, coupled with the outstanding contribution the pupils make to Catholic life and their outstanding response to collective worship."
