THE BROAD AIM OF THE SCHOOL
Our aims are directed towards preparing each pupil for life beyond the school. They are concerned with developing high standards through the provision of quality learning experiences and making the most effective and efficient use of all resources available to us.
Recognising its historical foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church in Wales and in partnership with the Church at Parish and Diocesan levels.
The school aims to develop a caring, Christian ethos in which effective teaching and learning enables pupils to achieve their full potential, within the context of Christian belief and practice.
