I consider myself lucky to be the headteacher of a great school, filled with great children supported by great parents and staff! You will always be most welcome to come and visit our school and see for yourself. We can always promise you a warm welcome and our usual hospitality – even if it is to just pop in for a cup of tea and a chat! I look forward to meeting you soon.
I trained at St. Mary’s College, Oscott (a mile from here!) and was ordained to the priesthood in June 1995 at SS Joseph and Helen, Kings Norton, Birmingham; a group of parishioners came from Christ the King. My late auntie Rita was familiar with the parish of Christ the King as her parents-in-law lived in Petersham Road. After ordination, I served in a parish in Redditch where there were three primary schools. From there, I worked for five years with the Birmingham Catholic Youth Service living and helping out at St. Josephs, Nechells and later at Our Lady and St. Walstan, Southam. In 2004, I became parish priest at St. Patrick’s, Wolverhampton serving as chaplain at the local hospital.
During the summer of 2011, I was asked by the bishop to take on the parish of Christ the King. I am very impressed with the vibrancy and talents at the school. It is a community of faith where the children love to learn and celebrate Christ as King.
It is important that we have a vision for our school. Our vision is that the children, their parents, staff, governors and friends of Christ the King school will realise the goodness and love of God and their value as His sons and daughters and that the sense of calling to serve and follow Jesus Christ the King will be evident in the school community. A vibrant and joy filled school community at Christ the King will be a beacon of light and hope in Kingstanding, a shining example of the way to discover the fullness of life through faith and education.
