Mission statement and Gospel Values

“In our College we value and respect every person as a child of God, as we grow together in faith, knowledge, understanding and love to serve the community.”

As a Catholic College gospel values are at the centre of our College community. The Mission Statement of the College reflects our commitment to living and developing Painsley as a faith community. Our aim is to provide the highest quality of education in order to develop and fulfil the potential of all students in our care. The faith development of our students is of paramount importance and whilst we strive to live in a faith community, we also ensure opportunity for the development of religious belief and religious literacy to ensure the foundations of faith in all our students.

The ethos of the College permeates all areas of College life. All departments have both sensitivity to and respect of the faith of the College and seek to enhance and develop the faith of the students in the curriculum pathways that are offered.

School Prayer

Dear Lord,
We thank you for the gift of today and for all that you have prepared for us.
Help us to ‘Know Ourselves’ so that we can truly serve you.
Let our hands be the hands of Jesus by helping those we meet; let our words be the words of Jesus by speaking with truth and justice; let our hearts be like the heart of Jesus always willing to forgive and find mercy.
We pray that today we can fulfil the potential you gave us and we trust that you will walk by our sides as we grow in faith, knowledge and understanding.
