Our Vision


We see our school as an environment where people come first. It is pleasant, warm and collegial.

In it we work together, learning from each other, sharing ideas and valuing the contribution of everyone.

We strive to promote excellence by raising the capabilities of each individual. We set challenging, though achievable, goals for ourselves and our pupils. We hold hope for every child in our school, promoting Catholic values and celebrating their many and varied success.

 We are self reflective and endeavour to anticipate initiatives and choose what is appropriate, for the benefit of the children and the greater good of the

whole school community.
