A Jesuit Education
Through the pursuit of excellence in all we do at the Mount and Barlborough Hall School and by caring for the whole person, we produce grateful and generous, learned and wise young men and women of conscience, compassion and competence.
We are a Jesuit school, and our vision upholds these values. In that spirit, we welcome students of all faiths and none to become:
Grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, becoming men and women for others;
Attentive to their experience and to their vocation; and discerning about the choices they make and the effects of those choices;
Compassionate towards others, near and far, especially the less fortunate; and loving by their just actions and forgiving words;
Faith-filled in their beliefs and hopeful for the future;
Eloquent and truthful in what they say of themselves, the relations between people, and the world;
Learned, finding God in all things; and wise in the ways they use their learning for the common good;
Curious about everything; and active in their engagement with the world, changing what they can for the better;
Intentional in the way they live and use the resources of the earth, guided by conscience; and prophetic in the example they set to others.
At the Mount and Barlborough Hall School we proudly embrace the guiding principles of the Catholic faith and the Jesuit approach to teaching and learning. These core values have stood the test of time: they are simple, effective and universal.
Our values are lived by everyone at our School, Catholic, non-Catholic, with and without a religious faith.
Care for the whole person: Attention is paid to every aspect of a pupil’s growth and development.
The pursuit of excellence: We ask the best of everyone, across the school community, in all things.
We are honest, have strong moral principles and a faith-based values system.
A child’s journey towards independence and responsibility is our focus from the moment they join us.
Time, space and energy is devoted to the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, creative and physical formation of each pupil.
Giving thanks for all that is good in our lives, at school and beyond develops a spirit of appreciation.
Jesuit schools pioneered prize-giving. The pursuit of excellence yields success and achievement and we celebrate pupil accomplishments every week.
