Key Information

Learning together as we walk in the footsteps of Christ


Our core values:

  • We welcome, respect and nourish each individual as a unique creation of God.
  • We set high standards and celebrate the achievements of everyone.
  • We are passionate about developing enthusiastic, lifelong learners who relish challenge.

Equality Statement

As you can see from our Mission Statement it is important to us that everybody feels welcomed, cared for and is celebrated. We aim to ensure that we deliver equality of treatment and opportunity for all at our school, and act against any signs of abuse, prejudice, or discrimination, whether direct or indirect. These aims are central to our Catholic ethos, but also enable us to meet our obligations under relevant equality and discrimination legislation.


We are committed to:
  • Eliminating unlawful discrimination and harassment
  • Promoting equality of opportunity
  • Promoting mutual respect, understanding, and good relations between people of different backgrounds.
  • Promoting positive attitudes to others regardless of differences.
  • Encouraging full participation by all members of our community in school life
  • Taking steps to take account of the circumstances of all members of our community to enable such full participation


Further detail of how we do this is contained in our SEN Policy (including Accessibility plan) and our Equality Policy (both below). We welcome questions or suggestions from all members of our community, so please do email us.
