We focus on the need to develop a sense of personal identity, whilst at the same time acquiring an awareness, understanding and tolerance of the cultural traditions and beliefs of others. We educate students to build on their cultural character through our fantastic humanities subjects. Students show a real love and passion for English Literature, Geography and History. This is fostered further through the wide range of languages on offer. Pupils are educated to appreciate aspects of their own heritage and others cultural traditions. Our Catholic ethos not only ensures for daily collective act of worship, but the religious education scheme of learning dedicates time to learning about other faiths and cultures. The pupils learn to understand and appreciate the similarities and differences between themselves and others. The school has a strong commitment to ensuring all students participate in creative subjects, and through subjects such as Dance, Drama, Performing Arts, Music, Art and Textiles, students are free to explore ways of expressing themselves. The huge participation in contributing to the annual school production, music and dance shows each year identifies the real impact of these subjects have on character building, confidence and self- esteem.
