Everything we do at Blessed Thomas Holford College has its roots in the hopes of parents for their children. Our school is a partnership between students, teachers and parents and we invite all parents to regard themselves as members of our school community.

In an imperfect world, we hope that our pupils will carry forward from Blessed Thomas Holford a firm faith in God, Christian values and a gratitude for the gifts that we have received.

We encouraging the pursuit of excellence and hold dear the values of honesty, justice and mutual respect so the are an example of Christian values in the world as witnesses to God’s Living Kingdom.

Our values are centred in God, rooted in gospel values and derive from the vision of Mary Ward – “Love and speak the truth at all times”.

Our strong belief in the capacity and responsibility of women to contribute significantly to society and to the Church underlies the emphasis on the education of girls in the Loreto tradition. It builds on Mary Ward’s conviction that ‘women in time will come to do much’ and is inspired by her independence of spirit, her strength of mind, her courage, her commitment and her sheer dedication to her work.

St Ambrose College – A Catholic Grammar School with Mathematics & Computing

Principal: Mr James Keulemans

The central purpose of St Ambrose College as a Christian Brothers’ school is the wholesome religious, moral, intellectual, cultural, physical and social education of its students. We believe that the school is a partnership between teachers and parents – that parents play a vital role in the development of the College and the education of their sons. The College aims to provide a well-ordered caring environment where self-discipline is emphasised and pupils are enabled to take responsibility for their own actions following a reasoned set of Christian values and principles.

We demand the highest possible standards of our pupils whilst supporting them with a system of pastoral care, which promotes respect for all of the community. We therefore value highly good manners, courtesy and fairness. St Ambrose College offers support and guidance for all pupils as they take advantage of the wide opportunities offered to them within the College, enabling them to make full use of their talents and so contribute to the good of the whole school.

We seek to develop the College as a vibrant Christian community where pupils will learn to integrate their Catholic faith and culture “seeking first the kingdom of God” and enabling them to be “ambassadors of Christ”. We aim to do this together in a spirit of hope and happiness following the example of Blessed Edmund Rice and under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the patronage of Our Lady, Help of all Christians.
