Mrs S L Keelan-Beardsley – Executive Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to All Saints Roman Catholic School and hope that our website gives you a flavour of who we are; our ethos and values and how immensely proud we are of our young people. We are an outstanding school (Ofsted 2016), where visitors always comment on the caring and aspirational atmosphere that pervades every aspect of school life. Every person coming into our school, whether as a student, member of staff, parent or visitor will be warmly welcomed into a happy and loving community.

Our mission as a Catholic school is rooted in the gospel values of faith, love and unity. We expect all members of our school community to live out these values in their every-day interactions. Our young people treat others with dignity and respect and have high expectations of themselves and others, encouraging each other to succeed.

Academic excellence is our first priority and a positive approach to learning is at the heart of our school. Students are set realistic, challenging targets and through the nurturing and aspirational environment that is central to our community, they achieve results to be proud of.

Our students are the finest ambassadors, demonstrating what can be achieved through hard work and a positive attitude. They are actively involved in the extra-curricular opportunities available to them; many pupils achieve musical and sporting excellence as a result and maintain these throughout their adult life.

Through our strong partnerships with families and the wider community our students leave All Saints as self-confident, inquiring, tolerant and positive men and women. In our rapidly changing world it is vital that they move on to the next stage of their life with a broad portfolio of knowledge and skills. All Saints School provides this, together with a strong sense of self-worth and the academic and social skills to make a valuable contribution to society.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school.


Mr R Thompson – Head of School

At All Saints we genuinely believe we have fostered an atmosphere where “all are welcome” and I hope you have the opportunity to experience this sense of a loving and caring community when visiting us. Our mission statement succinctly captures our overarching goal to “educate the whole person to thrive personally, academically and spiritually by putting Christ at the centre of all we do.”

As a former All Saints student it is a privilege to come back and serve the Catholic community where I grew up and support so many young people in experiencing the same ethos that makes our school such a unique learning environment. By having high expectations complemented with compassion we believe we are developing the responsible citizens of tomorrow.


Miss S Cattle – Head Student

I’m Sasha and I study History, English Literature and EPT at A Level: I’ve been a student at All Saints since Year 7. Through my role as Head Student I am afforded the opportunity to make a tangible difference in the school community: representing All Saints at events; getting involved in social justice causes I am passionate about and counselling younger students. The ability to give back to the school, after the wonderful education it has gifted me, is an incredibly rewarding experience.

Mr S Williams – Head Student

I started at All Saints at the beginning of Sixth Form, however it feels that I joined much earlier, this is due to the unlimited support and help given by teachers. Many  students from different schools around and outside of the city come together to learn at All Saints, providing an opportunity for everyone to make new friendships. The broad curriculum enables all students to find a passion within learning as well as extracurricular subjects for both the wellbeing and growth mindset of pupils.

Mr H Kane – Chair of Governors

A warm welcome to All Saints School. In my third year as Chair of Governors I am looking forward to another challenging year and working with all our stakeholders to continue to build on the exceptional success we achieved last year as a school community, particularly in academic results.  

At All Saints we bring Christ into our daily lives; guided by our catholic ethos we place students at the centre of all that we do.   We seek to develop our students to enable them to develop their god given potential: spiritually, pastorally and academically, preparing them to be able to contribute to the creation of a society that is highly educated, skilled and cultured. 

To achieve the best outcomes for our students, we recognise the importance of the partnership between student, parents and staff and I encourage all parents to engage with us and participate in all aspects of school life.

The role of our Governing Body is to ensure that our school is guided by its mission, vision and values, and to hold school leaders to account for the successful delivery of educational outcomes in a caring and loving environment.  I look forward to working with all our stakeholders, parents, parishes, communities, the local authority and the diocese together with other educational establishments in York to provide the best possible educational experience in which our students are happy, confident and able to learn and prosper as well rounded individuals.
