All Saints is a Catholic school taking in students from 11 – 18, which has been established by the Diocese of Middlesbrough for the education of Catholic children who live in the designated parish catchment area allocated to the school. In addition, All Saints takes in a number of children from other Christian denominations and none, whose parents have specifically requested a Catholic education at the school, provided that they satisfy the criteria laid down in the Governors’ Admissions Policy. This results in All Saints being a truly diverse community with pupils drawn from the full range of ethnic, cultural, religious and socio-economic backgrounds. The school recognises that certain groups in society can be disadvantaged because of unlawful discrimination they may face due to their race, sex, disability, gender reassignment, marriage/civil partnership, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
