These values are the foundation of learning for our students, providing them with an academic start to life that is supportive, nurturing and inspiring. It is an essential requirement that you are a practising Catholic, someone who will act as a role model and be prepared to maintain the Christian values which underpin the very special and highly regarded family and community of Saint Gregory’s.
