Our mission is to…


We envision…

a school of Christian excellence where our students take pride of place, preparing to live extraordinary lives. To be academically accomplished, confident in their own worth and generous in the service of others

To these ends

  • We encourage a warm and genuine spirituality based on the teaching of the Church, the Gospels, the Sacraments and personal prayer
  • We value and promote honesty, integrity, kindness, courtesy and perseverance
  • We are dedicated to academic achievement and encourage our students to balance this with varied extra-curricular interests so as to develop all their talents and live full, rich and satisfying lives
  • We promote a healthy self-confidence and personal ambition, balanced with a sincere ethic of duty and service
  • We welcome students of other faiths and of none, and are happy to share what we have with anyone of good will
  • We commit ourselves, in every sense, to our students and to their care, safety and wellbeing at all times.

The good of our students is the measure of all that we do.
