Saint Gregory's Catholic College in Odd Down, Bath, England is a Roman Catholic, co-educational school that will soon have the addition of a sixth form. It was renamed from Saint Gregory's Comprehensive School, which opened in 1979. It teaches around 800 pupils.

The school has specialist status in Performing Arts[1] and Modern Languages.[2] In 2008 and 2013, it was rated as "Outstanding" by Ofsted.[3]

There are six houses, named after former popes: Leo, John-Paul, Peter, Alexander, Clement and Benedict.

In 2011 the school formed a soft federation with St Mark's CofE School in Larkhall, with St Gregory's headteacher, Raymond Friel, being appointed as executive headteacher in charge of both schools.[4][5] The federation will build a joint sixth form at St Gregory's.[6]
