Our mission is to educate girls, to nurture their personal, social and spiritual development, and to promote academic excellence. The ethos of the School is rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition and we welcome pupils from other Christian denominations and religious faiths.  The School is committed to equal opportunities for all.  We want each girl to enjoy her experience of school life so that she is ready to play a full and responsible part in the wider community.
