As a joint church school between the Roman Catholic Diocese of Plymouth and the Church of England Diocese of Salisbury, our primary aim is to provide an education that supports parents and carers from our dioceses with their responsibility to share their faith with their children. We believe that the spiritual development of young people is best supported if home, school and the church community the family belong to, work together for the benefit of the young person.
