What the school says...

All visitors to Grace Dieu encounter a tangible sense of a deeply rooted and timeless spirituality the hallmark of our education for over 80 years. First-time visitors become quickly aware of the Schools ethos. There is a palpable sense of peace and tranquillity within and around the School. There is a high level of industry, purpose, creativity and confidence from which our pupils joyful noise emanates. This, nestled in 120 acres of breath-taking countryside, and with one of the most striking school buildings to be found anywhere in the country, makes Grace Dieu a captivating and special place.

We offer more than the academic rigour and exceptional pastoral care that are the aspirational staples of all schools. Grace Dieu can certainly boast these elements; what sets us apart, however, is that we are a Catholic school, thus our goal is directed toward achieving so much more for our pupils than mere academic skill and intellectual capacity that seems to be the sole currency of success in todays world. Grace Dieu has a high regard for its pupils academic achievements; more than this, our model of education seeks to engage pupils in their formative years on many fronts and on many levels. Pupils begin to discern all that is good, virtuous, true and beautiful in the world. Imbued with a sense of worth, purpose and infinite value, pupils are ready to leave us at the end of Year 8, equipped to embrace the world and change it for the better

At Grace Dieu the childhood of each pupil matters; childhood is nurtured and embraced: to laugh, to wonder, to marvel, to be curious and to be awed defines our educational aspirations. As such, our pupils are compassionate, generous and kind; and they have a deep sense of right and wrong. They are interesting pupils and thoughtful.

Relationships between staff and pupils ensure that each and every child is known.We guide, enable, facilitate and inspire; we are a community in communion with one another. This sense of community is tangible; it is what makes Grace Dieu distinguishably different.
