Our Purpose and Values

Our Purpose and Values

To educate and enable young people to flourish and achieve their aspirations for life. 

As a school our core purpose is to educate young people. Our students spend up to 13 years with us, and over this time, we aim to not only give students access to academic excellence. We also aim to help students develop the skills needed to navigate their lives and flourish beyond the school gates. 

Our spiritual wellbeing and academic care programs provide a framework for our students to be reflective, respectful, and supportive of one another. We aim to ensure our students feel valued, recognised, and have a voice within school and the broader community.
