Welcome from the Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to the Cardinal Winning Secondary School website. As Head Teacher I am committed to ensuring that our young people are safe, happy, supported and challenged to reach each of their individual potentials. Moreover, I am proud to be part of a school community where the Gospel Values are central and at the heart of all we do.

Cardinal Winning Secondary is a school which supports young people with additional learning needs from S1 to S6. The school is situated in the east end of Glasgow in the Tollcross area of the city. Our staff, parent/carer partners and our young people have a shared vision of a school where expectations are high, where young people are nurtured and given a wide range of opportunities to succeed and where we all grow and learn together. Our dedicated staff is committed to career long professional learning to ensure our young people experience learning and teaching which is innovative, engaging and understanding of each young person’s needs.

In Cardinal Winning Secondary, it is important to us that we know our wonderful young people and their families well, and support them fully throughout their time as part of our school community. We encourage and value the support of our current parent/carer partners and would warmly invite you to join our enthusiastic and committed Parent Council. For those parents/carers of prospective pupils, can I take this opportunity to invite you to contact myself at the school and I’ll be delighted to answer any questions you may have or to meet with you in person.

Our young people are key to everything we do here at Cardinal Winning Secondary and we work hard to ensure we put their spiritual, cognitive and emotional development first.
