Ethos

Our aim is that every Cedars boy grows into a fine young man, fulfilling his academic potential and also acquiring those qualities that will help him in later life.

We aim to help each boy become the best young man that he can. We do this by working in close partnership with parents to promote personal growth in every aspect of a boy’s life.

In the academic sphere we encourage a deep love of learning and a spirit of intellectual adventure while providing a solid and supportive foundation for success in public examinations.

Through our tutorial programme we help each boy to acquire good habits – virtues such as generosity and self-discipline – that will stand him in good stead throughout his life. We seek to appoint teachers who will be excellent role models for pupils and will lead by example.

Through the Eudaimonia Programme we seek to ensure that all boys are culturally literate so that they are able to participate fluently in society.

We aim to provide excellent pastoral care in a safe and supportive environment and encourage pupils to develop a sense of responsibility, physical and emotional wellbeing and a spirit of generous service.

We aim to prepare boys well so that they are able to make a positive contribution to society.

All of our aims are underpinned by an understanding that we will not find ourselves except through making a sincere gift of ourselves (cf Vatican II Gaudium et Spes 24).
