The values and principles of our School

Nurturing uniqueness

screen-shot-2016-12-04-at-19-33-06We encourage and celebrate individuality. Most of all, we understand that your child has their own qualities and strengths, and we are here to support their individual potential. Furthermore, nurturing a pupil’s self-esteem and ambition for their future is critical.

Our caring ethos

We welcome pupils of all backgrounds and understand how important it is for children to feel as comfortable in school as they do at home. We help them flourish and to be excited about learning. Most importantly, we equip them with the knowledge and confidence to thrive in secondary education and beyond. 

Catholic values

Whilst we teach a foundation of Catholic values our School welcomes pupils of all faiths. In fact, our ethos is simply to teach the values we feel are relevant to all young people in today’s world. We teach children to have compassion and understanding towards others and to show respect for themselves, fellow pupils and teachers. 

Independent and affordable
