Our Mission


The College provides opportunities for students to maximise their potential; personally and academically.

The College aims to develop in students, and to deliver to society young people who have:-


  • Discernment:

The ability to discern what is good, having developed the knowledge and skills to commit themselves to action for a better society.

  • Character:

The ability to demonstrate initiative, self discipline, integrity and compassion in their life style. The ability to withstand peer, and other pressures, demonstrating resilience.


  • Success:

That students are prepared to work hard, and to strive for success in personal life, in further education and in employment.


  • Faith:

That students have had the opportunity to discover the truth of the Gospel of Jesus as well as the nature of God. That students may choose to have a relationship with Him, living in the service of God.




We believe that schooling should be a positive, engaging experience where every student can explore and develop their individual abilities in a safe and challenging environment.
