Aims & Ethos


We aim to create a love of learning in a friendly and happy environment, nurture individuality and instil in our students a sense of community spirit. Each
girl and boy is encouraged, advised and guided by staff which enables students to explore ideas and pursue their own interests. We aim to provide each child with the best possible start and give them the confidence to believe in themselves. We promote a sense of personal responsibility based on the values of truth, justice, compassion, partnership and community.

St. Dominic’s welcomes children of all faiths and ethnic origins, and endeavours to ensure that the cultural and religious differences within our school community are recognised and respected. The Dominican motto, ‘Laudare, Benedicere, Praedicare’ – to praise, bless and preach the Word of God, ensures that diversity is recognised and respected.

the Whole Person

Children need a wide variety of interests and challenges to complement their academic studies. Throughout the school, pupils are encouraged to explore their interests both inside and outside the classroom.
We excel in the Creative and Performing Arts and a busy programme of sport, cultural events, speakers and visits enhances school life.  A wide range of clubs and activities supporting both curricular and non-curricular subjects which means that there is something for everyone.

Nurturing the Individual

One of the strengths of our small community is that each and every pupil has a voice. There is a strong family atmosphere and a spirit of collaboration is promoted throughout the school.
Happiness is the key to effective learning. By ensuring that each child is known, respected and cared for, we identify the unique needs of the individual and respond accordingly.
Investing time and individual attention in all our pupils helps them to develop into confident, self-assured individuals who show respect for others and earn respect for themselves.
