Inspiring learning for life - hope for the future

School Ethos and Values

School Core Values


Mission Statement


Learning together to achieve academic and personal excellence.


Vision Statement


Everyone in our school is part of a family of life-long learners with great ambition, desire and determination to succeed. We celebrate each child's individual strengths and provide opportunities to grow and learn in a creative and caring, challenging and inspiring environment.


Spirituality Statement


Spirituality, for us, is about relationship: with ourselves, with others, with the world and with the ‘beyond’ - exploring the big questions of life and Faith.


Our children need time to grow and find their own path. They need and deserve loving attention. The Christian Gospel says that God has a special plan for each of us, a plan to give us a future and a hope, a task with God and for God. Our purpose, as educators in a distinctively Christian school, is to encourage them to connect with that task and grow into it. (Dr Rowan Williams)


We believe that each of us is unique and has the potential for a journey towards a relationship with God, a living God who loves and cares for us both as individuals and as a community.


Knowing that we are loved by God gives us confidence in who we are in him and hope for the future; it empowers us to reach out to others and make a difference in the world.

“I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “plans to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
