Blanchelande College

Mission Statement

Blanchelande College is a Catholic school, widely recognised for the outstanding quality of its all-round education. This education goes beyond ‘traditional’ academic success by instilling values and principles that truly educate a child for life. We have a reputation for providing a secure and nurturing environment for our pupils that allows them to develop their confidence and self-esteem, both of which are fundamental to their happiness and well-being. So, if you are looking for a school in which your son (aged 3 to 11) or daughter (aged 3 to 16) will be inspired to achieve academic success, and become part of an extended family that prepares them for life beyond school, then you have found it in Blanchelande.

5 Golden Rules:

Our philosophy of education is a simple one and recognises that as a school we must always place the needs of our children at the heart of what we do. Every child is a unique individual with different talents and aptitudes. Our job as educators therefore is to fully develop their potential both academically, culturally, athletically and spiritually within a caring and supportive environment. This helps to build confidence and self-esteem which is essential for their happiness and well being.

For this reason we have ‘Five Golden Rules’ in the school which we expect all of our pupils and staff to follow. These reflect what we believe to be essential for their education and development:

  1. Do your best to be your best
  2. Be kind and helpful
  3. Treat others as you would like to be treated
  4. Be polite and well-mannered
  5. Respect the views of everyone in our community and beyond
