Our School Name

The school is named after the Bishop William Cyrian Pinkham who was the first Anglican bishop in Calgary. Bishop Pinkham was involved in Education in Manitoba before he came to Calgary. He was a member of the Council of Education and also served as a Superintendent of Education for the Protestant school in Manitoba from 1872 to 1883. He was responsible for creating a system to train teachers and also for beginning secondary education in Manitoba. After leaving Manitoba, Bishop Pinkham lived in Saskatchewan and then he administered the Anglican church in the Calgary area from 1903–1926. He and his wife were known for their charitable work in education and health care.

School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

School Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.
