Our Mission, Ethos & Values

‘We learn not for school, but for life’

Our Mission at Savio Salesian College is to be a Catholic School that seeks to appreciate and develop the talents and skills of each individual. Inspired by the life of Christ and the work of St John Bosco, we endeavour, through active partnership with home, parish and the wider community, to prepare our students to face the future with confidence.

We aim to instil the Salesian values of Respect, Understanding, Affection and Humour – RUAH. These four values underpin every aspect of our school life and together spell out the Hebrew word for 'breath of life' or 'spirit'. These values must be evident in our orderly and settled environment where we insist on the highest standards of politeness, behaviour, and appearance.

· Respect – for oneself, and others, and every opportunity.

· Understanding – a commitment to learning and working well with others.

· Affection – care and love for each other, always.

· Happiness and Humour – Don Bosco loved to make people laugh

Pupils enjoy a school life that is supported by prayer, worship, celebration of the Eucharist and excellent chaplaincy provision. In addition, high-quality personalised learning which helps all pupils to achieve their potential, whether they need an excellent academic training or a more vocational approach.
