At St. Ignatius we see Catholic education as an integration of body, mind and spirit. Rooted in this vision, Catholic education fosters that search for knowledge as a lifelong spiritual and intellectual quest. The expectations of our students therefore, are described not only in terms of knowledge and skills, but also in terms of values, attitudes and actions.
St. Ignatius is now in its 45th year and we are proud of our history of providing quality academic, athletic, artistic and spiritual programmes for our students. The strong home-school-parish relationship has created a genuine family atmosphere where young people are welcome from all social and cultural backgrounds and from around the world. Fundamental to this is our belief that parents are the primary educators of children and that schools are there to support and nurture this role.
At St. Ignatius, the holistic development of each individual is our primary purpose. Our Staff, from Nursery to Sixth Form, strive to know and nurture each pupil, working together to promote strengths and self-worth, in mind, body and spirit. We work diligently so that all pupils leave us as discerning believers, effective communicators, reflective, creative and holistic thinkers, self-directed lifelong learners, collaborative contributors, caring family members and responsible citizens.
