Mount Carmel is the only Roman Catholic High School serving the people of Hyndburn.
With Christ at the heart of our community, we believe in the worth and dignity of each individual. Our aim is to nurture their gifts and talents by providing a caring, challenging and stimulating environment in which effective teaching and learning takes place.
We seek to encourage our students to witness Christ’s teaching and to participate in building the Kingdom of God.
Mount Carmel RC High School serves the Catholic community of Hyndburn and the surrounding areas. We are proud to provide high quality Catholic education for all families in the area who share our values, beliefs and traditions. We regard each pupil as a child of God, each with their own unique set of talents and qualities. At Mount Carmel, we strive to develop and nurture these qualities and in that regard we ask for the full support of parents so together we are able to give all pupils the best possible foundation for the future. As well as ensuring that all pupils enjoy learning and achieve the best possible exam results, our aim is for our students to leave Mount Carmel as well rounded, confident, well-mannered, responsible, caring and compassionate young people, who have been formed by all that is good in Catholic education.
Mount Carmel is a school with a great heritage. It has a long standing relationship with the local catholic and wider community. It is a school that has also gone from strength to strength in recent years and continues to strive for nothing less than excellence in all aspects. It is a school firmly based on strong family values and all that is good about the beliefs and traditions of our Catholic faith. It is focused on developing outstanding teaching and learning so that all pupils are developed fully academically, socially, morally and spiritually. We believe that all these values will ensure that our pupils are well placed to make a positive contribution to the school and wider community and, when they leave, to the rapidly changing and multi-cultural world we live.
