Our Purpose

Empowering young people to be the source of their own success is our commitment in enabling our students towards a life fulfilled.

Our Vision for Young People

By the time they leave our school our young people will be able to communicate effectively.  They will be able to solve mathematical and scientific problems.  They will be able to express themselves creatively and imaginatively.  They will have a strong sense of self, a sense of others and a sense of place.  They will make informed choices that effect positively on their own wellbeing.  They will ask questions, be reflective and adaptive; capable of thinking and acting for themselves and ready to join forces with others to achieve a goal.  They will be positive in their mind-set and willing to face up to a challenge.  They will be active and healthy in mind and in body.  Our students will have a keen care for their environment and feel a close connection with their natural world.  Our young people will understand what is right and what is wrong, and stand up for equality and human rights.  They will appreciate other cultures and traditions.  Our young people will be thoughtful, caring and active citizens making a difference to their community and to society.
