The Catholic High School


Sam Quek MBE visit to our School

The School was delighted to celebrate the opening of its newly completed all-weather floodlit hockey pitch on Monday 12 June 2017, marking the completion of the very first element of the School’s ambitious strategic plans, which aim to ensure that we can continue to provide the very best facilities and educational opportunities to our pupils.

To mark the occasion, Sam Quek MBE and Olympic Gold Medallist, cut the ribbon, but not before describing what it takes to be a Gold Medal Olympian to our year 9 students and, to the surprise of our GCSE and A Level students, putting them through their paces in a PE lesson.

Sam described the pitch as a fantastic facility and hoped it would inspire future Olympians to follow in her footsteps. John Murray, Headteacher commented ‘to have Sam spend most of the day here at school will no doubt leave a lasting impression on many of our students.  Sam is a great example of what hard work and commitment can achieve’.

The pitch is also available for hire for the coming season together with changing facilities and parking. To enquire about availability please visit our lettings page or call 01244 981608
