At Saint Kentigern, we encourage the ideal of a Christian community where girls learn and grow in an environment of inclusiveness, mutual respect and care for one another. Whilst Saint Kentigern is affiliated to the Presbyterian Church, we are respectful that our families represent a variety of cultures, denominations and faiths.
Our Chaplain leads the girls in worship once a week at nearby Somervell Church and each term our families are invited to join their daughters at a chapel service.
The Saint Kentigern motto, ‘Fides Servanda Est - The Faith Must Be Kept' encourages our girls 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 girls to become involved and offer help.
Values education at our school finds meaning in The Saint Kentigern Way, a code of care and respect that our girls are encouraged to adopt in every facet of their lives.
Our core values: Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence and Love underpin all that we do and ensure that your daughter will be educated to become a courteous, confident and caring young woman.
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,
