Hand in hand we journey together with Jesus by our side
Our fundamental aim is the education of the whole child. This includes spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional, social, physical and artistic development. We cater for each pupil’s needs, encouraging each to develop their talents and so achieve their personal goals. This enables our children to make a positive contribution to their community and make the world a better place, according to the values embodied in the Gospel.
Children are encouraged to become confident, independent young people who are able to meet the ever changing demands of life in the 21st century. We believe that the development of the whole person is essential to education, so a varied programme of extra curricular activities and a strong emphasis on personal development serve to ensure that each child reaches their potential.
Every child is different. Every child is important. Every child is unique. Every child is able to make their own special contribution to society.
We strive to meet the needs of every child, appreciating the gifts and talents that each brings to our school and the wider community.

We welcome parents/carers as real partners in the education of your child. Your child is growing and learning in a world that is continuously changing. We all want children to be able to adapt to the changes that they will face and be able to play a successful part in the world.
