Every child is known and loved

Mr Ted Balmer (Former Mathematics Teacher)

It is with great sadness that the school received the news that Mr Ted Balmer, former Head of Mathematics at school has passed away peacefully.

Ted taught here back in the 1960s when the school was originally opened on its current site. Back then there was just Mr Balmer and Mrs Bishop as the Maths Department and as you may know, Mrs Bishop is still teaching with us. She says that Ted has his own chair in the staffroom, located where the school office now is and there was hell to pay if someone else sat there!

We offer our thoughts and prayers for Ted and his family.

Our Values

Ambition Rooted firmly in Catholic teachings, we aim to nurture and guide our students to fulfil their God-given potential so they may achieve success.

Leadership We strive to be a community of servant leaders, where individuals gain a clear sense of self and purpose, knowing their values and using these to guide how they enrich the community in which they belong.

Integrity We teach our students to value honesty and have strong moral principles, using their discernment to govern their actions and take responsibility for their choices.

Vigour Inspired by the life of St Gregory, we empower our students to work with vigour, so they approach all activities and opportunities with effort, energy and enthusiasm.

Empathy We aim for our students to understand and value the feelings of others and for them to know they are loved and celebrated irrespective of their differences.
