Values and Visions
As a Catholic School, it is our “divine mission to help all to arrive at the fullness of Christian life”. Through our teaching and learning, we develop our pupils’ faith and spirituality, their understanding of their culture and the important part they play in society.
As Pope Francis said, “The mission of schools is to develop a sense of truth, of what is good and beautiful. And this occurs through a rich path made up of many ingredients. This is why there are so many subjects – because development is the result of different elements that act together and stimulate intelligence knowledge, the emotions, the body and so on.”
To achieve our mission therefore as a Catholic School, we must keep Christ at the centre of all we do. We believe our mission statement reflects what we as a faith school are currently doing to achieve our vision.
‘Together we grow in knowledge and love, and walk in the footsteps of Jesus’
