With a school community that reflects a variety of cultural and family backgrounds, we encourage the ideal of a Christian community where boys learn and grow in an environment of inclusiveness, mutual respect and care for one another. Whilst Saint Kentigern is affiliated to the Presbyterian Church, our families represent many denominations. In addition to our Christian Education programme, the boys join in worship once a week and twice a year our families are invited to join their sons for a family Chapel service.
The Saint Kentigern motto, ‘Fides Servanda Est - The Faith Must Be Kept ‘ encourages our boys to know and love God and to serve others within and beyond our school community. The School actively supports those less fortunate, as part of its Christian ethos, and leads an active Service programme encouraging our boys to become involved and offer help.
Values education at our School finds meaning in our Saint Kentigern Way, a code of care and respect that our boys are encouraged to adopt in every facet of their lives. The programme provides clear boundaries and expectations for behaviour whilst developing character, building citizenship and encouraging leadership opportunities. Our core values: Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence and Love underpin a comprehensive pastoral care network that ensures your son will receive the very best care and support during his primary years.
The Prayer of Saint Kentigern
O Lord Jesus Christ,
who didst give such grace to Thy servant Saint Kentigern,
that he readily obeyed Thy Call,
and brought light to them that sat in darkness,
and the knowledge of truth to those who were in ignorance and fear;
so inspire us also that we may follow Thee gladly,
and hating all that is cruel and evil and wrong,
may ever strive to banish these things from our land.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
