We have had a very busy few weeks

Choir: Congratulations to the Junior Choir and drummers who were first in the Lincoln Music and Drama festival. Also well done to the Infant choir who were third place.

Football: The Football Team recently played in the final of the Domino’s Cup at Sincil Bank against Sir Francis Hill School. It was a special occasion with over 10,000 fans watching the game.

The boys played really well and were victorious in a close game. Lee Frecklington was in the Lincoln City team on the day and was in our first winning half time team 21 years ago!

Well done to the boys for continuing a long winning tradition!

Finally we recently had a Diocesan Canonical Inspection. This is the inspection that looks at the Catholicity of the school. In particular it focuses on three areas: Catholic Life,


Worship and Religious Education. I am very pleased to announce that the school has built on the previous outstanding report, achieving the highest grading in all areas once again.

Here are a few extracts from the report: “…Under the strong leadership of the headteacher, the school has managed to retain its cherished traditions but at the same time review and adapt its practices

in order that the school continues to meet most recent definitions of excellence ineducation”. “…The Catholic Life of the school is outstanding. Displays of an exceptionally high quality provide a bright,

welcoming environment from on entry and throughout the school….Pupils and staff are kind towards one another and warm and welcoming towards visitors.” “… Collective worship in the school is outstanding.

Pupils lead whole school and class Acts of Worship with confidence and a high degree of independence”. “...Pupils demonstrate their passion and commitment to learning in Religious Education and view

it as one of their most important lessons. They concentrate well and are rarely off task”.

This is a testament to the hard work and commitment of parents, staff and governors and of course our children.

Everyone can be rightly proud of the report and it gives a fair reflection of the high standards and expectations that St Hugh’s has.

Please take time to read and share the report. Hard copies are available on request (from the school) and the report will be placed on the Diocesan website as well as ours:
