Mission Statement

St Pius X Catholic Preparatory School is just like a family, where everyone is welcomed, respected and cared for - and where love is at the heart of everything we do: learning and living by Jesus’ example in the Gospels.

We believe that everyone is a child of God - we respect, value and appreciate all members of our community. We recognise that all of our pupils are unique and precious, and so we strive to meet their needs and develop their individual gifts.

We aim to instil in each child a positive attitude to learning and a desire to face challenge with enjoyment.  We will nurture an attitude of respect towards all people and celebrate the uniqueness of the individual.

We are committed to high standards, encouraging individual excellence by supporting each child to achieve the best of which he or she is capable.


In light of the Mission Statement the School aims to:

  • Begin the process of educating the whole person, integrating each child’s spiritual, intellectual, moral, social, cultural, aesthetic and physical development so that each one achieves his/her full potential and that fullness of life which God intended:  in this endeavour, to encourage a real interaction between home and school.
  • Pass on knowledge and understanding of the Roman Catholic Faith, uphold the Church’s teaching and values and make prayer, worship and liturgy a real experience and an integral part of school life.
  • Be a caring, courteous and disciplined community where relationships are formed and conducted according to Christ’s Law of Love.
  • Encourage the school as a whole and as part of a wider community, by contributing to appropriate activities (such as charitable projects, social, sporting and cultural activities), so that every child becomes more aware of his/her Christian responsibilities to society.


Our Ethos

  • St Pius X has a tradition of academic excellence and is committed to nurturing and enhancing each child’s academic and social development.
  • The school seeks to treat and recognise the children as individuals, developing their talents through a broad range of curricular and extra-curricular activities, the aim being to prepare them thoroughly for their transition to senior school at the age of eleven.
  • The establishment is noted for its happy, caring environment. Socially, much emphasis is placed upon developing the children’s characters. Good manners and deference to authority are insisted upon at all times.

You are probably asking what makes us different from other schools.  The simple answer is: “our young people” – young people of whom you can be proud, and who can be proud of themselves.

Visitors to St Pius are immediately struck by the friendly atmosphere of the school, the openness and confidence of our scholars, the support that they give to each other, and the fact that the children clearly enjoy life at school.  We also achieve outstanding results from a broad range of ability.  Those results are not just within the academic field; we are interested in the whole individual.  Our well-balanced, multi-dimensional young men and women are prepared to participate fully in every area of life with the confidence to know their own talents, and a desire to live life to the full.
