School Ethos

The Cathedral School has a very special ethos which underpins all that we do. Our school aims to nurture the talent and personality of each pupil, enabling all to thrive within a mutually respectful and supportive environment.

What do we count as success? That young women and men leave here having begun to discover their own individuality, with intellectual curiosity as well as excellent examination results, appreciation of beauty and truth as well as knowledge, kindness as well as competitiveness, and with a breadth of interests and experiences which will enable them to make their way confidently in the adult world.

I hope you enjoy reading about our ethos, but this is simply an introduction. Come and visit for yourself, meet the people here and see the reality behind the words we present on this website.
