Welcome to Bishop Walsh Catholic School part of the St. John Paul II Multi-Academy

Principal’s Message
Week beginning 5th March 2018 (2/11/2018)

Year 8 Options Evening, 14th March 2018 –  7.30pm in the School Hall. 

All parents of year 8 pupils have been invited to an information evening about year 8 options which pupils have to make before Easter.  Please park in the school’s playground.


We celebrated fantastic A level results in 2017 where on average pupils achieved a quarter of a grade higher than their predictions which allowed them so many choices in terms of employment and university.  This was one of the best progress figures for any comprehensive school sixth form in the whole West Midlands area.  Application Forms and an Information Booklet for the Sixth Form will be available on this evening.

Lent 2018

We are now in the fourth week of the season of Lent.  Lent is the forty days of preparation before the greatest Christian festival, Easter.  We have a service on Ash Wednesday where we remind ourselves of the three duties of the Christian during Lent, Prayer, Fasting and Alms-giving.  This year our alms-giving efforts will be for CAFOD (Catholic Fund for Overseas Development), KIDS (a local charity helping families of children with disabilities) and Fr. Hudson’s which is the social care agency of the Archdiocese of Birmingham.
