The school is an energetic part of a large local community: students, parents, staff, other local students and local people. We also recognise that we work in a new modern global economy. Our motto Serviam - I will serve is reflected in our extensive and growing commitment to serve the wider community beyond our school gates. We recognise our responsibility where possible, to use our resources effectively for the benefit of all.

We are continuously developing links both in the local and international community. The school has developed links with a number of community organisations including the Merton Refugee Association. Students are regularly involved in our school parish, the Sacred Heart, and serve their local community in a number of charitable projects with local schools, homeless charities and the elderly. Our motto Serviam - I will serve, is at the heart of our school ethos.

In previous years we have been involved in Project Manvi in India which involved students raising their own funding to work with local children and help to build school facilities. In the UK our students are involved in supporting primary school children in some of their lessons as well as during sports events within Merton. Sixth Formers volunteer at Silversurfers – ICT lessons to older adults, intergenerational lunches and an annual party for guests from local residential care homes. Students also have the opportunity to develop their skills and offer Serviam through links with Perseid, a local school for children with profound and multiple learning difficulties and through a Year 8 project in partnership with the Institute of Philanthropy. By ensuring an inclusive school environment and building links with the local and wider community, we strive to create a school where different backgrounds and circumstances are appreciated and valued.
