Our definition of spirituality is underpinned by ‘human flourishing’ – a holistic child-centred approach in which we can all strive to reach our full potential both academically and spiritually.
Preparing for life in all its fullness
Our core Christian values are:
A passion for the pursuit of true wisdom; by developing confidence, delight and discipline in seeking it.
In God’s future for the world.
In the importance of relationships of love, compassion, generosity, truth-telling, forgiveness and gathering together as a community; across all barriers.
We strive to develop:
The belief that each person is blessed and is a blessing.
The importance of creativity; art, design, music, drama, dance, poetry, fiction and film.
A joy for our world through play and playfulness, wonder, amazement, fascination and delight.
A method of reconciliation; encouraging discussion of sensitive matters, providing strategies through which problems can be resolved.
A sense of glory and awe in God’s wonder and his image.
