St Simon Stock Catholic School, Maidstone
St Simon Stock Catholic School has a deserved reputation, both within Kent and nationally, for the strong academic progress that its young learners make and for the high expectations and aspirations that they have as they journey through life. The school provides all students with a world-class education, opportunities and experiences, as well as the time and space to discover, understand and pursue their true vocation.
The school motto is ‘Labora Cum Amore’, which means, ‘Work with Love’, as Christ taught us to do and the school's mission is to help all students achieve their full potential, aiming not just to cultivate the intellect, but also spiritual and moral values. The school aims for its students to recognise and realise their potential and to work with love and compassion to change the world around them for the better.
St Simon Stock students have high expectations of themselves and are aflame with a passion for the life-long pursuit of knowledge, truth, and justice.
At the heart of all the school's lessons is the firm belief that intelligence is not fixed, but is grown through our values of fortitude, lifelong learning, ambition, ministry, and empathy. The school builds these values into all of its teaching, and places a premium on scholarly habits so that students develop a thirst for knowledge, model exemplary behaviour and respect one another.
St Simon Stock has a strong family ethos and outstanding pastoral care. Christ’s love is at the centre of all that the school does and it nurtures every student in its care so they may become happy, confident, and well-rounded young people.
