Our Vision

Jesus taught us to be like him as He is The Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14 v6)

At William Law we commit to

“Learning, Living and Loving Together”.

The school community is learning and we want them to enjoy this and ‘skip to school’.

We want everyone to respect and love one another living together and therefore understanding a Christian way of life.

We want every child and adult to have a good mental well-being.

We define mental well-being as children and young people's happiness, life satisfaction and positive functioning.
