Our aims

  1. That the Blanchelande family experiences a safe environment where each young person flourishes.
  2. That, by fostering their gifts and talents, each pupil develops their personal vocation.
  3. That the intellectual life of inquiry is directed by the search for truth, beauty and goodness.
  4. That pupils learn to communicate with accuracy, logic and style.
  5. That pupils engage in service and charity, helping others and preserving God’s creation.
  6. That pupils extend their cultural horizons and have opportunities to experience and participate in the arts.
  7. That pupils nurture their health, growing in endeavour and enjoyment of true leisure.

Three Rules for Life

  1. Use your talents to pursue what is good.
  2. Treat other people as you would like them to treat you.
  3. Be tolerant and open to respectful debate.

‘Lord, help me to grow into the person you have made me to become.’
