Values, Ethos and Mission Statement

Our Vision:

At Holy Family, we strive to create an environment where only the best is good enough in all that we do. We will achieve this by having high expectations and developing a culture of ambition, challenge and achievement.

Our Mission

As a Catholic school, we place our faith at our core.  We are driven by the knowledge that every human is made in God’s image and likeness and therefore each person in our care deserves the best we can give. It is also our duty as Christians to reach out to our local community and global family, as fellow children of God. 

Our Best Values

Using our drive to be the best we can be, as humans who are made in God’s image, we have key values which help us focus and achieve our mission and vision.
