Vision and Values

St Augustine’s Church of England High School Vision


We are a voluntary aided Church of England school. We were founded in 1870 by the parish of St Augustine, Kilburn through Mother Emily Ayckbowm of The Community of the Servants of the Church(CSC) who also founded schools and convents in other London parishes and in other parts of the world.

The school maintains its strong links with the parish and the local community . We are a co-educational fully comprehensive 11-19 school. We are highly inclusive and welcome students whose heritage is from all over the world, whatever their background or ability level. Diversity is embraced and celebrated here. We provide a caring, safe, positive and happy learning environment.

We want all of our community to have equal opportunities to experience Life in all its fullness (John 10:10).

We encourage all community members to “be the best that we can be in every aspect of our lives as we grow in the Christian virtues of Faith, Hope and Love (1 Corinthians 13)” so that they can go on to contribute to and serve the wider community.

We live this through our shared Christian values which are linked to our school saints. These are:

Inclusion - St Augustine
Courage - St Aiden
Joy - St Bede
Perseverance  - St Columba
Kindness - St David
Integrity - St Edward
Curiosity - St Felix
Respect - St Grace
Wisdom - St Hilda

These values are reflected in all aspects of school life.


Be the best that you can be!

Christian & Shared Values

St. Augustine’s is an inclusive, happy and vibrant learning community that aims to ensure that every student achieves and experiences as much joy as much as possible during their time with us.
By working in partnership with parents and carers we hope that all students demonstrate courage and perseverance to achieve their hopes and aspirations.

  • We value and aim for excellence. Our students are capable of competing with the best students in the country and we expect our students to show a curiosity for learning; to become lifelong learners.
  • We are here to respect all learners and to make them feel welcome and have a sense of belonging, whatever their background or academic ability.
  • We praise the successes of all our students and staff and encourage them to act with integrity and to 'be the best that they can be'.
  • Although our thinking and research is up to date, our values are traditional and combine with state of the art technologies to support learning.
  • We want our students to show kindness and to value learning so that they can look back in later years with warmth and fondness on their time at St Augustine’s.
  • Our staff team are committed to ensuring that students of all abilities aim to make excellent progress. Staff development is an essential ingredient for the success of the school.
  • The school is held in high esteem by the local community and, as a consequence, is very popular and oversubscribed. We believe in the importance of knowing who we are, what we believe in and where we are going.


As a values led institution, St. Augustine’s CE High School actively promotes fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect of those with different faiths and beliefs.

We prepare students for life in modern Britain through:

  • including in suitable parts of our curriculum the advantages and disadvantages of democracy, and how democracy and the law works in Britain
  • ensuring our students have a voice through our active School Council
  • providing opportunities (for example, mock elections) to promote fundamental British values
  • helping students understand a range of faiths
