Mission, Vision and Values

Jesus said, “I have come that you may have life in all its fullness”. (John 10:10).

We believe that the “glory of God is a human being fully alive” (Irenaeus).

Each member of our school community is created by God and our aim is to achieve our full potential. All we do is rooted in this Hope of who we are as people and who we can become. The factors that help young people be fully themselves are: Safe Boundaries, Good Relationships and Empowered Learning.

We want every student to be able to say“I feel safe and belong here. I enjoy my learning and achieve well. This school helps me make my hopes come true.”

The tangible purpose of our Alive Model of Learning and Curriculum is “to develop the skills, knowledge and Alive qualities so that all our students can make their unique contribution to the world.” 

In order to achieve this, every member of our community is expected to conduct themselves in a manner which reflects our three circles:

Safe Boundaries include good order, security and accountability and consistency.
Good Relationships include a sense of belonging to God and each other, positive feedback, and ways back when things go wrong.
Empowered Learning is active, reflects our values, beliefs, and aspirations. We have high expectations and give and receive realistic feedback.

We want to help students develop all 15 of our values, qualities, and skills so that they can make their unique contribution to the world. Descriptions of these, with examples of how they might be represented in school life, are available below.
