Vision & Values

white-board-displays-1024x241.jpg

Following the example of St John Bosco the purpose of our school is to respond to the needs of each individual child; touching the heart and developing the whole personality by fostering qualities of mind, body and spirit, feeling and imagination in a supportive Catholic community.

We aim to help students to:

  • Develop lively, enquiring and creative minds, and the skills and abilities necessary to reach the highest personal and academic achievements.
  • Develop personal spiritual lives, an awareness of God, and a deepening understanding and appreciation of their religious faith.
  • Develop self esteem and to understand and live moral lives based on the Gospel values of love, peace, justice and personal responsibility.
  • Understand and respond to the needs of others; to respect other races, religions and ways of life.
  • Respond to the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life and the world of work, and appreciate human aspirations, achievements and interdependence.
  • Celebrate and enjoy experiences of achievement, success, friendship, happiness and shared endeavour.

We see this task as a shared endeavour, as a partnership between school, home and parish, working together to prepare our young people to enter the wider community, and to be a positive influence where they live and work.

Children need an orderly, settled and caring environment if they are to achieve their maximum potential; we insist on high standards of politeness, behaviour and appearance.

We believe these values represent the best of British values and they are a thread which runs through all our work at Thornleigh Salesian College.
