The Pilgrim School

Vision and Values

The concept of pilgrimage has been at the heart of our school since it opened in 2005. In 2018 we renewed our vision, deepening our understanding of who we are and reflecting on our pilgrimage to date. The development of this vision and our associated values was firmly rooted in our reflection on the passage in Matthew 16:13 -20 where Jesus asks His disciples, “Who do you say I am?”. This passage has been explored throughout our school community. We have been challenged to consider the importance of our identity by asking, “Who are we? Who do people say we are?”. We have responded by exploring how we live as Pilgrims with Jesus as our role model. With this in mind we all try to live using a set of values associated with our vision:


  • Wisdom
  • Compassion
  • Trust
  • Respect
  • Forgiveness
  • Perseverance


Our vision defines all that we do as Pilgrims, both within our school community and beyond.
