De Lisle College Mission Statement

“Rooted and grounded in Love”.

Ephesians 3:17

Our mission is to be rooted and grounded in God’s love so that each student receives the highest quality Catholic education and knows that they are loved deeply by Jesus Christ.

  • All students experience the Love of Jesus Christ every day.
  • Everyone is given the Opportunity to grow.
  • Everyone Values themselves and each other by ‘doing what is right, not what is easy’ in the words of our school motto.
  • Above all, we will grow actively in our faith by seeking a personal Encounter with Jesus Christ, so that we bear witness to the good news and to the teachings of the Church.
  • We all Serve our neighbours near and far as missionary disciples.

British Values

At De Lisle we recognise, not only the importance of helping students to flourish academically but also spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, so they are fully prepared for life in British society and for their role as citizens, able to make the strongest possible contribution to society. We teach the importance of British Values by going much deeper into the meaning of what it means to live a good life, within a framework of Catholic Christian Values. This provides the context and meaning for understanding why British Values are important.
