Core Values

The school’s Core Values (Community, Happiness, Generosity, Kindness, Forgiveness, Faith, Resilience, Achievement, Integrity and Fairness) developed by students, governors, teachers and staff emanates from the very foundation of ‘Service’ laid by the Daughters of the Cross. These Core Values should be visible in each person throughout the school as Christ is the centre of each school day, in the classroom, on the corridors, in the playground and on the buses, even in our homes. One should be able to identify a Philomenian through their attitude to life and the relationships they develop, grew and nurture.


In February 2018, St Philomena’s held a competition to re-design the school’s Core Values. 

This competition was open to all students, three winners were picked from each Key Stage.  

The Key Stage 5 winner was Maezal Y12 

The Key Stage 4 winner was Francesca Y10

The Key Stage 3 winner was Christin Y7

Staff and Students voted for an overall winner.

The winning design was awarded to Maezal (Y12) shown below.
