Students at All Hallows dazzled the Ofsted inspectors when they remarked the College ‘is as perfect as it can be’ during their recent visit to the Voluntary Academy in Macclesfield. Inspectors were equally inspired by the Catholic College ethos and awarded the highest possible grade of ‘Outstanding’ in all areas including the Sixth Form. This is the second time the College has received an ‘Outstanding’ result and the Inspectors congratulated the Principal and all the staff for achieving such an impressive outcome and flourishing, even when expectations have never been higher.

The innovative College was praised for the quality of teaching and learning which allowed their students to ‘make rapid progress in a wide range of subjects.’  The Principal, Mr Billings, senior and middle leaders, teachers and governors are said to provide outstanding leadership not just through a ‘relentless focus on improving teaching’ but also ‘the personal development of students,’ where each individual is valued and nurtured.

All Hallows students’ attitude to learning and behaviour is ‘Outstanding’ and students are ‘keen to do as well as they can.’ The faith and values of the college play a ‘major part in students feeling well prepared for the next phase of education and life in modern Britain.’

Mr Billings, the Principal said, ‘We couldn’t be more pleased.  I am so proud of everyone.  We are always striving to be the best we can and it is wonderful to have such public recognition.’ Jacqui Feely, Chair of Governors said, ‘the Governors are over the moon with the result and the report which captures the excellence and extent of the care for young people which is at the heart of All Hallows. This is a well-deserved result achieved by the whole team working together each and every day.’

Principal’s Blog – Ubuntu

October 5, 2014 in Front Page News, Principal's Blog by Mr A BILLINGS

Let’s reflect on Ubuntu

Do you remember my assembly at the start of the new academic year?

Do you remember the meaning behind this photograph?Ubuntu

I introduced you to the word ‘Ubuntu’ and we’ve since named a part of our dining room ‘Ubuntu’ as a reminder of what we can share when we sit down and talk to each together.

Ubuntu is a South African (Nguni Bantu) term roughly translating to “human kindness.” It is an idea which literally means “human-ness,” and is often translated as “humanity towards others,” but it is often used in a more philosophical sense to mean “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”.

According to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Ubuntu speaks of the very essence of being human. We say “Hey, so-and-so has ubuntu.” It means you are generous, you are hospitable, you are friendly and caring and compassionate. You share what you have. It is to say, “My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in yours.” We belong in a bundle of life. We say, “A person is a person through other persons.” A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed, or treated as if they were less than who they are.” Archbishop Desmund Tutu.

I thought it would be good to share our ideas on Ubuntu. Here are some questions, just for starters. Share what you think of Ubuntu as way of understanding life.

Do you have ubuntu? Do you know someone who has good ubuntu?

Is ubuntu a way of explaining what we mean by ‘having honourable purpose’?
