Our mission is how we go about attaining our vision:
To support parents in discipling their children: to reach their academic potential, to know God and develop their relationship with him, and to serve and influence others through godly attitudes and actions.
‘To support parents…’: This is a fundamental belief that God has given children to parents to train and steward, and that the school has been delegated responsibility by the parents for certain aspects of their teaching. Genuinely working together and believing that the parent has the final accountability before God for their children, sets a very important posture for us in school. This is a different attitude towards education and children, than espoused by the state.
‘In discipling their children: to reach their academic potential, to know God and develop their relationship with him…’: Alongside parents we don’t just ‘see how they will turn out’, but we disciple them. Sensitively leading the pupils into a growing relationship with God is the central tenet of all success for us as a school. This leads to success academically and relationally, and helps the pupils to learn what God’s calling is on their lives- how each one of them will make a difference in His world.
‘To serve and influence…’: This involves discipling them into an attitude of service, based in sacrificial love. We teach them to believe that they can have significant influence and leadership as they are obedient to God.
‘Through godly attitudes and actions’: This emphasises that we are training Christian character, and that both the actions and the attitude behind the action is important to us. We do not want ‘religiosity’, or ‘blind rule following’, but a sense of actions flowing out of knowing and loving God.
