As a Catholic School, we believe the teaching and practice of the Catholic faith is very important. As well as being explicitly taught during lessons, it is practised regularly and lived out in all aspects of school life through our words and actions.
We are a diverse community, welcoming those of all faiths and none. We consider this a strength of the school, embracing tolerance, respect, compassion and acceptance, while teaching our children how to live in a multi-faith, multicultural society.
Our message for all is the same; we are guided by Jesus in all that we do, we are one school, one community, one world. The atmosphere at school reflects this, with a calm and caring environment in which children can learn effectively and feel happy, safe and valued.
We believe that every child is unique and by working together we can help your child to grow spiritually and habitually live out Gospel values.
Well done to all of the children who joined us in family mass to celebrate the Feast of Christ the King which is the end of the church’s liturgical year. The year ends and celebrates the kingdom of God in all its richness before we begin the new Liturgical year.
