Our ethos is underpinned by the gospel values of serving others, tolerance, compassion and forgiveness. As a community of learners, believers and friends, we are committed to the spiritual, moral, educational and social development of our community.
As a community of learners we aspire to achieve our full, academic potential in a happy, safe and caring environment. As a community of believers we aim to develop a full awareness of our spiritual and moral responsibility and a deepening love and understanding of our faith. As a community of friends we influence the people around us by using our unique gifts and talents to develop one another socially and culturally to build a better world.
