Headteacher's Welcome
For Mr Henstridge, with love...
Contact Us

On the 1st March 2021, Mr Henstridge died, shortly after being diagnosed with cancer. Our hearts go out to Mrs Henstridge and to their children at this time and we ask our families to continue to pray for them all.

Mr Henstridge was the pillar of light and strength at the heart of St. Catherine's and St. Mary's for 6 years and had recently begun to work closely with Holy Cross. All who knew him were shocked and saddened by his death and he will be missed more than can be put into words.

It is obvious from the messages we have received that people all around Swindon have been deeply affected by the death of someone they remember as a great teacher, mentor, inspriational leader and friend. The family have asked that those who would like to remember him make a donation to Cancer Research UK in his name. We hope that those who choose to donate will also leave a message for the family and that the family will find some comfort in hearing from others who knew and loved Mr Henstridge.

If you would like to make a donation, please follow the link below:

    Half-Term and Parent Survey Feedback
    Good morning, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your ongoing support over the last term. None of us wanted to be back in a position where school was only open to a few and yet we have continued to work through this as a community and the parental support during this time has meant a great deal to staff. Hopefully, when we return after half-term, the Government will have decided on the next steps for schools and we will be able to tell you what Term 4 is going to look like. We will be in touch as soon as we are able to about arrangements moving forwards. In the meantime, for at least the two weeks following half-term, school will still be open for those children who presently have a place and online learning and Teams sessions will resume on 22nd February for those currently learning at home. The other thing I would like to thank all of you for is your diligence in ensuring that no child has come to school displaying any symptoms. Thank you for making sure that you are isolating and testing whenever necessary and for helping to keep all of our community as safe as possible. Please do inform me at sburke@stcatherines.swindon.sch.uk if your child tests positive over the half-term break so that we can work with Track and Trace. We hope that you and your families enjoy the break from home schooling and that you all stay safe over half-term. With a little bit of luck, the weather will at least be good enough for you to be able to enjoy some walks outside. I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish those of you in our Chinese community a very Happy New Year. Take care, Miss Burke
