Mission Statement

Inspired by the person of Jesus Christ and the witness of John Carmel Heenan we, the community of Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School, strive to live out our God-given vocation: to respect ourselves, others and the world around us, that we may achieve our full potential.

We aim to live out this statement, guided by the Holy Spirit, through:

  • Being a welcoming and inclusive community that demonstrates the love of God to all we meet, through our words and actions
  • Collective Worship, assemblies, curriculum, policies and a daily life that reflects the Gospel values
  • Building relationships with each other based on the teaching of Christ found in St Luke’s Gospel; "Do to others as you would have them do to you”
  • Striving to be good citizens by taking on responsibility for others, locally, nationally and internationally in order to serve the Common Good
  • Nurturing our God-given gifts and talents in every aspect of school life
  • Caring for the environment we are privileged to live in

Our school motto is Respect, Believe, Achieve.
