"I have come that they may have life,

and have it to the full."

JOHN 10:10

We celebrate our commitment to the Gospel values as a community in daily classroom prayer and in a variety of assemblies, events and liturgies. All pupils start each day by participating in a collective act of worship which takes place either in the Main Hall, the Year Base or the classroom. Prayers are said regularly throughout the day. Holy Mass, or an alternative liturgy, takes place during one lunchtime each week and provides an opportunity for quiet witness. Major feast days of the church are celebrated in school. This provision is part of our programme to help our students to reflect upon their spiritual and faith journey in a peaceful and supportive atmosphere.


Our school’s mission is rooted in the teaching of Christ and finds its basis in the Gospel values. These are drawn from the Beatitudes, Christ’s Sermon on the Mount. Pupils will see these in every book so that we all come to know the values well and to live them consistently. The values we can draw from the Beatitudes are show underneath each one:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven”
Faithfulness and Integrity

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted”
Dignity and Compassion

“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth”
Humility and Gentleness

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

for they shall be satisfied”
Truth and Justice

“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy”
Forgiveness and Mercy

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God”
Purity & Holiness

“Blessed are the peacemakers,

for they shall be called children of God”
Tolerance and Peace

“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven”
Service and Sacrifice

Gospel of St. Matthew, 5:3-10

We aim to live by these values at all times in our school community.
