Ethos and Values

At St Catherine's we strive to provide a caring, positive environment in which all members of the school community, irrespective of age, race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, gender or disability are encouraged and expected to respect one another.

Aim High

In Life

We aim to develop independent children who are equipped for the world they are living in, prepared for the challenges of the future and who strive for excellence in all they do

We seek to nurture children who appreciate the richness, diversity and potential of the world beyond their own, including their responsibilities within it

In Learning

We are committed to ensuring children master secure knowledge and understanding across the curriculum, having the skills to apply and express their understanding

We continue to provide opportunities for children to take risks, explore and have the courage to follow their curiosity, helping them to discover their own voice and identity

With God

We look forward to preserving and developing our religious character in partnership with the church and the diocese, encouraging children to explore their own beliefs and living according to our Christian values


In partnership, to live, learn and grow in independence and in faith through hope in our future
