Lewis Court High School

Ethos, Vision and Values

Light, Life, Love


Light shows us the way

Life is the way

Love is the glue that holds everything together


Our children are very familiar with our Mission statement however we wanted to drill down to what it actually means to us and how it impacts on our lives. Each child gave their thoughts in words and pictures and together, from the whole school’s contributions, we have a clear representation.


Thank you in particular to Michael Soji, Sophie Lopez Jurado, Michelle Winner, Simona Pospisilova & Alfredo Tinajero-Webster for their words and Khea Mitchell for her imagery. 


Light shows us the way
Jesus’ light guides us to the path that leads to God.

Life is the way
God created us for a reason: to serve Him, through serving one another.

Love is the glue that holds everything together.
Love creates a stronger bond between us, holding us together as a Catholic family.

In order to fulfil our Mission we share these core values:

  • love and mutual respect             

  • dedication and loyalty          

  • justice and fairness          

  • honesty and trust                  

  • the living of our faith      

  • high expectations of each other

  • forgiveness and reconciliation

  • an affirmation of each other’s talents  

  • a commitment to a culture of continuous self improvement

  • a willingness to co-operate and share our gifts for the good of all

In order to fulfil our Mission we aim to:
