The Vision for our School

Our motto ‘opera in caritate’ is based on the words of St Gregory and it is our ‘work through acts of love’ that underpin all that we do. Each child is uniquely created in the image and likeness of God, and they are loved and challenged to grow in maturity and confidence so they can be the best person that God has called them to be.

Our vision – we will offer our students the very best start in life. We will do this by equipping students with essential life skills and provide solid character education along with a good set of qualifications so that they can be successful citizens of society.

 

School Motto

“opera in caritate”

based upon St Gregory’s statement “The proof of works are in love”
