St Anne’s Academy Vision and Values


The best for everyone, the best from everyone. We have faith in our future.


Aspiration I believe that having high aspirations can motivate me to work hard and achieve my goals without excuses. I have high expectations in everything I do. Aspiration is valuable because it allows me to look beyond my current experiences and to understand, interpret and change the world for the better.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Integrity I believe that living my life by high moral standards and values is important. I understand how values are grounded in faith and biblical teaching. I commit to doing the right thing in all circumstances, even if this makes things more difficult for me and when no one is watching. I take responsibility for myself and my community to help it improve for everyone.

“Whoever walks in integrity walks securely.” Proverbs 10:9a

Respect I believe that mutual respect is the most important element in a kind and cohesive community. Respect, and self-respect, means that I take things seriously. I care about myself and others and aim to do good as I go. Respect is valuable because it allows me to understand the differences in our community and to know how to behave in the best interests of that community.

“Love your neighbour as you love yourself.” Matthew 22:39

Hard work I believe that through hard work I can overcome challenges as I meet them. I am resilient and want to complete every task to the best of my ability. Hard work is valuable because it enables me to be the best I can be and the best I am meant to be. It builds the foundation of experience and learning for my future.

“With God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
