Through the pursuit of excellence in all we do and by caring for the whole person we produce grateful and generous, learned and wise young men and women of conscience, compassion and competence dedicated to “improvement in living and learning for the greater glory of God and the common good.”
(St Ignatius Loyola, a founding father of the Society of Jesus.)
We are an 11-18 state college, founded in 1960 within the Archdiocese of Birmingham and, and an Associate Jesuit School. Catholic schools are characterised by their Christian mission, in addition we embrace an Ignatian identity.
The following vision of Jesuit schools comes from one of the key documents on Jesuit education.
Jesuit schools should be places:
- where people and believed in, honoured and cared for;
- where natural talents and creative abilities are recognised and celebrated;
- where individual contributions and accomplishments are appreciated;
- where everyone is treated fairly and justly;
- where sacrifice on behalf of the economically poor, the socially deprived and
the educationally disadvantaged is commonplace;
- where each of us finds the challenge, encouragement and support we need to reach
our fullest individual potential for excellence;
- where we help one another and work together with enthusiasm and generosity, attempting to model concretely in word and action the ideals we uphold.
We are an inclusive college and families of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome here. Our mission is to know our pupils, understand them, challenge and support them so that they grow to be fulfilled, purposeful and happy members of society who care in the proper sense for others and themselves.
