Head Master's Welcome
Happy boys tend to be busy boys. Happy and busy boys tend also to be successful boys.
I believe in a traditional, Catholic, liberal education that combines the very best of the world in the pursuit of timeless excellence. I believe in the importance of values; politeness, kindness, respect, integrity, honesty and courage are moral virtues that are to be encouraged always. I also believe that small details are important; tidy uniforms, neat books and orderly sports kits all combine to set the high expectations upon which all boys thrive. Finally, and very importantly, I believe that boys require confidence to succeed and should have plenty of fun along the way.
We at St Philip’s are committed to first-class pastoral care and academic rigour, and we seek to combine these with a healthy sense of perspective in a profoundly Christian atmosphere.
