–  Establish a framework within which self-discipline can develop and self-esteem be fostered.


–  Encourage an understanding of the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church, respect for religious and moral values and an attitude of tolerance and understanding towards other religions, races and ways of life.


–  Help pupils to understand the world in which they live and foster an awareness of their responsibilities towards others in their local, national and global community.


–  Encourage pupils to acquire knowledge, qualifications and skills relevant to adult life and employment in a rapidly changing world.
