Our Mission

COLLEGE MISSION

The College provides opportunities for students to maximise their potential; personally and academically.

The College aims to develop in students, and to deliver to society young people who have:-

              

The ability to discern what is good, having developed the knowledge and skills to commit themselves to action for a better society.

 

The ability to demonstrate initiative, self discipline, integrity and compassion in their life style. The ability to withstand peer, and other pressures, demonstrating resilience.

     

That students are prepared to work hard, and to strive for success in personal life, in further education and in employment.

 

That students have had the opportunity to discover the truth of the Gospel of Jesus as well as the nature of God. That students may choose to have a relationship with Him, living in the service of God.
