The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School

Executive Headteacher   Tony CorishThe Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School was founded in 1962. The school has an 8 form entry from year 7 through to year 11, and with a now thriving sixth form, we have in excess of 1400 students on roll.

The school is named after the 160 Douay Martyrs between 1577 and 1680.  The school motto, Through Faith Success, reflects the ethos, values and faith of those Martyrs. As a consequence students leave Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School with excellent educational outcomes, as well-rounded young adults who have been educated in an inclusive Catholic School environment.

The current Executive Headteacher, Anthony Corish, took up post in September 2015.  Working with staff, parents and students, the Head, Governors and Leadership Team have articulated an ambitious vision which builds on the tradition and school values. This “Douay Way” defines everyday life in the school.  This is accompanied by outstanding Pastoral care and Guidance which is exemplified under the “Walk with me” mantra that permeates through daily school routines. 

The school has excellent relationships with local and DOWAT schools, experienced and committed Governors, in a growing practice of collaboration with parents and, above all, talented staff and students who are proud of their school and its tradition.
