Equality & Diversity

As a worshipping Catholic community, our Christian values determine our actions. These core values are promoted not only through dedicated PSE lessons but they also are embedded within our school ethos and across the curriculum.  At St. Patrick's & St. Brigid's College we recognise not only the importance of allowing pupils to flourish academically but we also embrace our wider role in preparing them for their adult life beyond the formal examined curriculum.

Our Christian values encourage self-esteem as we are unique in creation, and we celebrate each other’s unique talents.  At all times, we encourage respect for others, and within our discipline policy, we are conscious at all times of God’s love and forgiveness.  

The college has a very strong and healthy extracurricular life, which seeks to involve a full range of pupils of all ages in participation in sports, creative arts and academic activity. Through our commitment to sports and the arts, our pupils learn to value team-work, perseverance, admiration for others, respect for tradition, tolerance of others, stoicism in the face of defeat and modesty in the face of victory.
