"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
It's too easy to take life for granted. As a school we take every opportunity to foster an attitude of thankfulness, of gratitude for the gift of life and its many blessings, for the beauty of the world and the love which surrounds us. Thankfulness is best expressed through engaging with those in need - both within and beyond our own community - developing an active social and moral conscience, nurturing the vocation each of us has to serve others for the common good: in community service, social action, charitable work, and active and meaningful partnerships with those in situations very different to our own.
The Cathedral School is fortunate to be a member of the Woodard Corporation, a nationwide family of 40 schools educating 30,000 pupils. Pupils of all denominations and faiths are warmly welcomed here, as well as those of no faith; yet the school has a clear, inclusive Christian identity, cherishing the virtues of faith, hope and love in all aspects of its life, work and worship.
