Our Vision

By 2022 our school will be providing an outstanding Catholic education, where everyone in our community, children, parents and staff, are enabled to realise their potential to progress academically, socially and spiritually – in living, loving and learning.

Our vision of an outstanding Catholic education is ambitious and looks beyond the conventional definition of ‘outstanding’.

We aim to enable everyone in our school community to make significant and continual progress in:


Living :

  • Our children’s enjoyment of a full and rounded development.
  • Our staff and governors’ feeling of fulfilment in their vocation.
  • Our school’s contribution to the Catholic education partnership in York and across the Diocese.


  • The partnership between parents, staff and the whole of the school community in developing their children.
  • The parishes’ enjoyment of a close and mutually interdependent partnership with their school.


  • The academic achievement of each child.

Our Strategy

Living: Infusing everything we do with our Catholic faith, spirituality and ethos;

Loving: that nurtures our school as a loving and caring community;

Learning: that grows the learning and achievement of everyone.
