Our Mission and Ethos

 

 

“CHRIST AT THE CENTRE”
(Ephesians 3:17)

Bishop Marcus Stock, the tenth Bishop of Leeds, wrote these words in his publication
“Christ at the Centre” (2005, revised 2012):
“In the midst of legitimate diversity, all Catholic schools share something in common:
they are rooted in Christ, who is to be the centre of their life…
Unless a school has Christ at the very heart of all that it is and does, it cannot be a Catholic school”.

 

OUR MISSION


Here, under the guidance of our patriarch, St Joseph, and inspired by centuries of Catholic teaching,
we begin to learn how to serve each other and our world

with the same faithful joy which we see in Jesus, our Saviour and our Lord.

To Him be glory and praise for ever.
