Why it’s good to be a Christian School

1.      We welcome all people, from all cultures and all beliefs.

I am often asked whether we accept students of differing faiths despite the fact that we are an Anglican School. I like to inform parents that it is not despite but because we are an Anglican school that we welcome all students from all cultures and all beliefs.

At the core of the Biblical picture of humanity is that each and every human is inherently valuable because they have been created in the very image of God! It was this Christian doctrine that drove the early church to care for the sick, the widows and the discarded children in the ancient world. It was this Christian doctrine that drove William Wilberforce to bring an end to slavery in the British Empire; Martin Luther King Jnr to fight for racial equality and Nelson Mandela to bring an end to apartheid in South Africa.

A Christian school sees each and every student who enters the gates as inherently valuable because of our Biblical foundations and this means your son will be most welcome here, whatever his back ground, whatever his beliefs.
