Stuart Bathurst Catholic High School College of Performing Arts offers a distinctive Catholic and inclusive education based on traditional Christian values and high expectations. The school’s motto “Tien Ta Foy” or “Steadfast Faith” underpins a commitment to help our students grow in self-esteem and realise their full potential.
We offer an education for the development of the whole person:
- Intellectual and spiritual
- Moral and emotional
- Social and cultural
We work in partnership with our:
- Primary schools and Parishes
- Diocese and Local Educational Authority
We aim to provide vibrant experience of Christian community where everyone can flourish. Students, teachers and support staff are expected to work for the common good of the whole community.
Respect for a person and a person’s property determine the character of our relationships. Visitors to the school always comment on the calm and purposeful atmosphere in our classrooms and corridors. This is a school in which teachers can teach and students can learn.
Our unique balance of traditional values and progressive teaching has enabled our students to achieve high standards. We never rest and are never complacent. We continue to seek development opportunities and improve on our best practice. We know that we are a very good school but working together, united in purpose, we will continue to go from strength to strength.
Stuart Bathurst, our patron, was a man who took his faith seriously. He was an Anglican priest who made significant personal sacrifices to become a Catholic. He saw education as the key to personal growth and as the means to enable Catholics to make the fullest contribution to the common good of society. From his commitment and achievements, we learn the importance of a steadfast faith in God and each other. Stuart Bathurst’s example encourages our students to have faith in God, and we as teachers and parents, to place our faith in them.
We welcome into our community all those who share our vision, and can actively support our aims and values as a Catholic school.
