Aims and Values

Our mission statement

“Building a Christian Community, Committed to Excellence for All”

We want to make sure that our Christian values run through everything we do and they guide us in our decision making and our future plans. The wheel shows what we as a school stand for and strive for.

At the centre of our hub are 2 commandments; Love of Jesus and Love of Neighbour. This is what holds our school together and is central to all we do. Then we have the spokes of the wheel that are our Christian values. The wheel, or rim, are our aims, policies and procedures that allow our school to run smoothly and drive our ambition.
