Our Mission Statement

Presentation College is, by choice, a truly co-educational school. We aim to prepare all of our pupils, girls and boys alike for the challenges, responsibilities and experience of adult life. All members of the school community - pupils, parents, teachers and other staff - are held in very high regard and their dignity, worth and individuality is respected. We strive to build a sense of community based on Christian values. The school’s Code of Conduct acknowledges this and aims to promote a culture of respect throughout the school. It recognises that good discipline enables good teaching and allows good learning to take place.
