The children excel in their caring attitude to each other whilst also thinking of people further afield with each House supporting different charities in their fundraising. The School is underpinned by strong values and described by others as a strong feature of the school. They are rooted in all aspects of the school’s work and help promote the mission and ethos of the school. The school collaborates closely with other local catholic schools in the Emmaus Partnership as well as within the Camino Diocesan Hub. The school can effectively monitor and moderate its outcomes across a wide network of schools.
