  •     a welcoming and caring school; 

  •     a school where pupils and staff feel happy, supported, safe and secure; 

  •     a learning community with a strong sense of Christian values, working in partnership with parents

And to provide: 

  •     A wealth of education and moral experiences 

  •     Motivation for each child and adult to achieve their full potential 

  •     Recognition of achievements both inside and outside school



Vision Statement (2022)

Our school recently undertook a series of visioning sessions involving pupils, parents and staff. During these meetings we discussed a variety of options for our core values and vision statement.
Having reviewed all contributions, we have agreed on the following vision statement, which we can all share and passionately embrace to help lead us forward as one unified yet diverse community.


Our school vision is to provide within a nurturing and respectful community, a diverse and inspirational learning experience delivered by skilled, passionate staff to motivated pupils. We aim to empower each child towards striving for excellence and fulfilling their full potential.

This vision will be best realised by fulfilling our school motto: facta non verba; actions not words.

Our Core Values

As a community, we have identified four core values that stem from our School Vision and are woven into the very fabric of the school. We expect all members of the school community - pupils, staff, trustees and clergy- to model these. 

Our core values are: 


C – Care 

This connects us with each other and our communityWe who are many, are one body in Christ." (Romans 12:5) 

O – Opportunity  

This means utilising what is provided within our school community. “So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” (Galatians 6:10).

R – Respect 

This means regard highly, value, honour. "And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them." (Luke 6:31) 

E - Excellence 

This means being outstanding or striving to reach your full potential. "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord." (Colossians 3:23-24).
