The Beginning of Our Journey
Our journey began when the school became a sponsored academy in 2015. Since then, we have worked extremely hard to realise our vision in becoming St Philip Howard Catholic Voluntary Academy. The SPH Journey to Date shows just some of the key improvements in our back story to the present time and we continue to drive the improvement of our academy in our journey towards the future.

The SPH Remote Learning Journey
Throughout the period of Remote Learning, Team SPH became, ‘Closer… Together on the Journey’. We focused on six key principles which further enhanced our support and provision for all. These practices continue to be key foundations for all in our school community.

The SPH Success Journey
The Success Journey outlines the provision we offer to each individual Student throughout their time at St Philip Howard. It maps out the vision we have for our Students from Year 7 to Year 11 with the main criteria that we believe will enable our Students to be successful in each Year Group, Key Stage and throughout their whole journey at Team SPH. We believe that if Students follow this pathway, they will develop as ‘whole’ people who will go onto succeed in Further Education, Training or Employment. We believe that each step will support every individual to be successful in their own personal journey for the future, realising their full potential.

“The overall effectiveness of the school is good. The Headteacher is an inspirational leader and the strong leadership shown by
the senior team has galvanized the school community and taken them on a journey of reflection and development. The Headteacher’s
passion and drive have led to an overwhelmingly positive sense of community and care within the school. She has been
ably supported by effective governors at the school, who set challenging expectations”. DCI June 2018
