‘Academic excellence, spiritual development and social awareness through Christ’
Our mission statement
‘We strive to develop a partnership with our families and parishes, which together educate, challenge, and empower students in Faith, based on the Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ, guided by the Holy Spirit, expressed and evident in our daily actions.
We communicate our Faith through love, prayer, reconciliation and celebration. Our aim is to unlock the full potential of every member of the school, by providing them with the opportunity to achieve excellence as moral learners, leaders, and Disciples of Christ through service to God, each other, and the community.’
At the very heart of our school are the Gospel values upon which we were founded. At the heart of Catholic Education is a belief that every child is created in the image of God and has value. This is why as part of a triangulation between the school, parent and child we strive to provide the very best education we can, achieving not only outstanding results, but also providing an education that helps all students to grow morally, socially and spiritually.
The Catholic ethos of the school permeates everything we do and our students recognise the importance of their actions and the impact that this has on the school and global community. Every year students raise £1000′s for local and international charities and work in the community to express their faith in action.
We celebrate Mass as a community and Collective Worship is an integral part of the school day for everyone. It aims to be inclusive, reflective and celebratory and we have a full time Lay Chaplain, Liturgy Leaders and a RE department who all work alongside each other to further develop the Catholic ethos of the school.
As a school we try to ensure each student has the space and time to develop their talents, to develop spiritually and is given opportunities to live out the message of Jesus Christ daily.
We start with our Year 7s at the beginning of the year, where they have a ‘Welcome’ Mass as a Year group and every year group celebrates Mass several times a year. The Liturgy Leaders meet regularly and work on a range of initiatives and lead in preparing the themes for Mass for pupils in Key stage 3 and 4. Retreat days are reflective and prayerful and focus on helping our students to get involved in making a difference in our world through themes such as i.e. Christ has no body but yours, Live simply and Our journey together.
