Catholic Ethos & Aims

In Mount Lourdes our Catholic ethos and Mercy tradition permeate all aspects of school life making Mount Lourdes a caring and supportive community.  Each individual student is valued here. We are committed to nurturing and fostering the holistic development of each student. Mount Lourdes provides a warm, happy, welcoming atmosphere with high standards of pastoral care and support.

Our approach is founded on a special partnership between parents/ guardians, the school and our students. We therefore work closely to ensure each young person achieves the very best and reaches their full potential. We believe in setting high standards across all aspects of school life and we are confident that with the support and cooperation of parents / guardians we can look forward to our students having success and achievement in all areas of school life.
