Welcome to St Robert of Newminster Roman Catholic School
St. Robert’s School & Sixth Form College is a Catholic and Christian community, in which we aim to follow the example of Christ in our daily work and relationships. We recognise that all members of our community are learners and are unique and eternal. Staff and students alike should strive to treat one another with tolerance and respect and to be aware of one another’s needs, hopes and aspirations.
The school aims, through a broad and balanced curriculum and an effective programme of personal development, to help all students to develop their full potential spiritually, socially and intellectually, within a secure, happy and Christian environment.
All individuals are children of God, created equally in his image to share an eternal future. We promise to play our full part in their education and formation.
We strive to meet the academic, moral, physical, social and spiritual needs of all students so that they may take their place as caring, committed, self aware and self confident adult members of society.
In striving to create the school climate, which will nurture this mission, the school aims:
- To offer all students a broad, balanced, appropriate, relevant and flexible curriculum.
- To develop as an integral part of the local community and in particular the local Catholic community; to develop and maintain the partnership between school and parents, parishes, primary schools and the wider community.
- To develop as a worshipping community, in which prayer and liturgy are encouraged as part of faith development.
- To encourage all members of our school community, students, staff and governors to follow the example of Christ in their daily work and relationships; to treat one another with justice, tolerance and respect and to be aware of and respond to each other’s needs, hopes and aspirations.
- To provide and maintain an attractive, secure, safe and healthy school environment for the students and staff.
Our school motto is “Sic Luceat Lux Vestra” which means “So Let Your Light Shine”. We firmly believe in the potential of our students and always aim to nurture and guide them in their personal and academic development.
