Religious Education

Catholic values underpin all areas of the curriculum and school life. We provide a positive environment to support our students to grow in their own self-belief we instil in our students a sense of social justice, allowing them to reach out to others.



As well as being a key learning area in its own right, English has a wider role as a means of learning in all curriculum areas.



In Mathematics students learn to apply their knowledge, skills and understanding, in a broad range of contexts beyond the mathematics classroom.


Creative Arts

Creative Arts aims to provide students with basic learning in the art forms through the subjects of Visual Arts, Music, Drama and Dance.


History and Geography

Human Society and Its Environment encompasses the areas of History and Geography. We encourage 'hands on' experiences, so that our students might explore and develop as independent and effective users of scientific and technological information relevant to their lives.


Science and Technology

A student's sense of wonder and curiosity about the natural and made world is fostered through actively embracing new concepts and the unexpected, and by learning through trialling, testing and refining ideas.


Sport and PDHPE

Sport is an integral part of the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) curriculum, which promotes fitness and a healthy lifestyle.


School Library

CSPD school libraries are physical and digital places of inquiry and reading. They provide access to a range of physical and electronic resources that help kids on their learning journey and inspire purposeful learning.
