Our Vision

 ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.   And the second is like this: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.'         (Matthew 22 v 37-39)

At William Law we commit to

“Learning, Living and Loving Together”.

We want everyone to enjoy school and ‘run 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.
