Students at St Nicholas Catholic High School are encouraged to focus on four key Gospel values that the school has highlighted as being central to everyday life. They are:
Joy: The recognition and gratitude that each of us is uniquely crafted and gifted by God.
Integrity: Having attitudes based on the gospel teachings of Jesus with a commitment to truth, responsibility and purpose.
Compassion: The desire to act justly, with an attitude of kindness and forgiveness, with everyone we meet.
Respect: Recognising the dignity of every human person and appreciating difference and diversity.
These values are displayed around school and are regularly referred to during form time, form Mass, and staff prayers.
