We are a Mercy School
We will live and work together as Jesus taught us
Spreading his loving friendship
To everyone we meet
As a school we understand that the fullness of life is to be found when Christ is at the centre of our lives. Our vision is rooted in the strength and guidance we receive from Christ at our core. By placing Christ at the centre of all that we are and in all that we do, we move closer to our educational philosophy ‘in which faith, culture and life are brought to harmony’.
The Religious Dimension of Education in a Catholic School, Congregation for Catholic Education,1988, 34
We not only strive to develop pupils as learners with skills for the work place and a responsibility to others, but we work to be a community ‘where the spiritual, cultural and personal worlds within which we live are harmonised to form the roots from which grow our values, motivation, aspirations and the moral imperatives that inform our choices and actions as persons’.
