Welcome to the Saint Pius X Catholic High School website. The website has been completely updated for 2016 with our new logo and a number of additional facilities including a link to our new parent portal which will be rolled out to parents this term a year group at a time, links to our updated online learning resources such as Firefly, GCSEpod and SAM learning and our new payment facility. Our new logo was chosen after consultation with school stakeholders and comes from the Papal Tiara of Saint Pius which is on our school badge.


Our school first opened its doors to students on September 16th 1957. Much has changed in education since then but we remain a Catholic school serving families in the parishes of the Dearne Valley. We are a popular and oversubscribed 11-16 Catholic Comprehensive and we welcome students of all faiths and denominations with a desire to learn in a caring, Christian community. Many parents and students tell us that they feel supported and cared for here. As a smaller secondary school we certainly have a close, community atmosphere. We are also proud of the academic achievements of our students with, once again, good progress being made by our students in 2015, which is a testimony to the hard work and dedication of our students and staff.


We are excited about the ongoing, new developments in school and we strive to ensure that we offer our students the very best. We are part of a strong learning community working together to ensure that our students are given the best start in life. I hope our website gives you a flavour of life at Saint Pius X.
