Mission Statement

Our Lady & St John Catholic College aims to be a caring Catholic Community centred on Christ, so as to fully develop the gifts and talents of each person in order to love and serve God, others and themselves.

Our Lady & St John is an 11-16 Voluntary Aided Catholic Comprehensive School whose task is to provide an environment wherein boys and girls will be able to develop spiritually, socially, intellectually and physically.

Through our Gospel values we aim to:

  • Nurture in all a knowledge and love of our faith in the context of a caring community that has concern and respect for the welfare of others.
  • Acknowledge that every young person has intrinsic value and worth and celebrate their uniqueness and autonomy.
  • Provide a secure, stimulating environment for learning that will enable our pupils to mature into responsible, self-confident young people, who achieve their academic potential.
  • Work towards the total development of each child, encouraging them to develop as caring members of the community with a sense of self-esteem, aware of their responsibilities and duties as well as their rights and an awareness and appreciation of the world in which they live.
