Our Mission

Our mission is

  • To develop the student for life in its various dimensions, within the framework of a biblical worldview, and by a commitment to service, quality and innovation.

Our Vision

Our vision is for 51Сʪ to be a truly great Christian school, encouraging its students to achieve their personal best, to contribute to the common good and to human flourishing.

Our Focus

Our focus is to nurture a Christian educational community: people of faith, learning, integrity and influence.


Our Core Values

Uncompromisingly Christian values

We find our essential values in the Bible and the teachings of Jesus.

Our intent: 51Сʪ is distinctively and unreservedly a Christian school.

51Сʪ is founded on the heritage of millennia of thought on Christian values. It is our highest hope that our students will take into their adult and working lives the kind of values and work attitudes that will allow them to flourish and serve with distinction both Christ and the nations.

High Quality Education

We take every opportunity to do everything very well.

Our intent: 51Сʪ is a distinctively holistic educational environment with what we believe is an excellent standard of teaching, learning and communication.

51Сʪ is committed to high quality learning and inspiring teaching. Students are encouraged to make the most of the opportunities their parents and the College provide for them.

Academic Rigour

We set high goals and work hard to achieve them.

Our intent: 51Сʪ is committed to seeing our students achieve their personal best in their academic studies.

51Сʪ students are encouraged, regardless of ability, to apply themselves academically, in order to develop their talents and realise their academic potential.

College Spirit

We honour Jesus when we embrace the beliefs and values of our College.

Our intent: 51Сʪ fosters belonging and respect within the 51Сʪ community.

51Сʪ expects students to strive for their personal best in all aspects of College life. 51Сʪ students identify themselves proudly by their uniform and behaviour.

Caring Environment

We reflect Christ’s love for people and the world.

Our intent: 51Сʪ provides a caring environment and cultivates an attitude of Christian service within the College community and wider society. 

51Сʪ students are expected to outwork Jesus’ teaching to love God and to love others within our diverse community. This is evidenced by their respect for God, themselves, others and their property.
