Our Aspirations

Make a Difference

We wish to inspire pupils to look beyond themselves and use their intellectual, religious and personal formation to make a difference in their communities and the wider world.

Jesuit Translation: ‘Perspectives and Horizons’

Standing at the margins, looking to the horizon.

The rationale for Jesuit education is preparation for life, which is itself a preparation for eternal life. Intellectual and religious formation is not an abstract end, we are also concerned with how our young people use their formation and skills within their communities, and indeed, the wider world.

Perhaps even more important than the formation the College gives to pupils, is the capacity and concern to continue their own formation; this is what we aim to instil in them. We want pupils to recognise that it is important to learn, but that it is more important to desire to continue learning all through life.

We urge our pupils to seek ways of using their talents for the service of others, for the praise, reverence and service of God. As a school we are part of a wider educational community, and service the local, civil and religious communities. Outreach is an important aspect of life at the College and everyone within the educational community is encouraged to take part in service as members.

Pupils, staff and parents are joined together to build a unity with others that goes beyond race, culture or religion. In our school, the atmosphere is one in which all can live and work together in understanding and love.
