Our mission is to ensure that every student achieves and experiences as much as possible during their journey with us. We want our students to enjoy their education so that they value learning and can look back in later years with warmth and fondness on their time at SMSJ and are as well prepared as possible for the next stage in their life. Our students will be articulate, ambitious young people with the strength of character and the confidence to compete in a highly competitive world.
We demand and achieve high standards in all areas of school life within a disciplined, secure, caring and stimulating environment. We value and praise the successes of our students and staff. The school is held in high esteem by the local community and, as a consequence, is very popular and heavily oversubscribed. Alongside academic excellence we place a strong emphasis on impeccable manners, articulacy, excellent behaviour, smartness of appearance, hard work and kindness.
