British Values

The Department for Education state there is a need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”

We are a Catholic School which seeks to live out the values of Jesus Christ. We promote these values through our words and deeds. Catholic doctrine and practice permeates every aspect of the school’s activity. We provide a Catholic curriculum, which is broad and balanced, recognising that every pupil is unique and is created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). Our curriculum is designed to enable every pupil to discern their vocation and to be well equipped to follow it as active citizens in service to the world.

Catholic Religious Education is the ‘core of the core curriculum’. (Pope John Paul II) and the foundation of the entire educational process. We also provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities and strong pastoral support. We incorporate democrative principles, value the rule of law, support individual liberty and foster a community in which different faiths and beliefs are respected.
