Vision and Values

We aim to provide the highest quality education for each and every child, in partnership with parents. We “delight in living, learning and celebrating together.”

Our vision is to “Live generously and graciously towards others, the way God lives towards us” (Matthew 5:48). We nurture supportive relationships within our often-changing community. We aspire for our children to be resilient and to flourish – happily, confidently and with enthusiasm.


We try to live like this because, as a school with a Christian Foundation, we especially value the teachings of Jesus Christ:

The Golden Rule (we are kind, helpful and polite)
