Gunnersbury Catholic School

Mission statement

"Gunnersbury Catholic School is a thriving, vibrant and caring learning community within which pupils are stretched intellectually and foster a love of learning, whilst feeling valued, happy and safe" (OFSTED)

Gunnersbury Catholic School has maintained seventy years of tradition in providing education to the boys of Brentford and District.   We form part of the Diocese of Westminster's mission educating young people in the whole of London, north of the Thames.   Gunnersbury Catholic School's desire to continuously improve the learning opportunities for its pupils is reflected in the school's mission statement :

"Gunnersbury Catholic School strives to educate all its pupils within an environment where the Catholic traditions of learning, truth, justice, respect and community are promoted.

It encourages all to engage in as broad an interpretation of education as is possible, and one which is in keeping with the motto 'Ad Altiora' - ‘To Higher Things.’”

Gunnersbury Catholic School aims to :

1. build a community based on Christian values

2. maximise the potential of the individual within the school in academic, personal, physical, social and spiritual terms

3. produce young men and women who will take their values beyond school to promote a better, more just society

We seek to achieve this by:

1. demonstrating fairness and justice in all school systems

2. promoting relationships based upon respect, tolerance and understanding throughout the school

3. creating a partnership in learning which identifies and develops  the talents of each individual

4. learning, living and celebrating our Catholic tradition
