able, well informed, enthusiastic, committed and loyal 

alongside pupils who are:

courteous, keen to improve, proud of their contribution, keen to learn, able to measure their own progress, independent in their learning and able to work cooperatively with others.  


Our Mission Statement


At St Cuthbert’s we strive to provide a safe and happy environment for all members of our school community.  We endeavour to develop in all of our pupils those abilities and talents necessary to achieve their full potential in life.  Our aim is for them to have a sense of self-worth and an understanding of the responsibilities they have for one another.  Through our deeply Christian ethos and policy of inclusion, we want to help both adults and children strive to find meaning and purpose in their own lives and through them enrich the lives of others.


Our Aims
