Vision Statement

Bishops Diocesan College in Cape Town, South Africa, a school rooted in Africa, aspires to:

  • live humbly and with moral courage the values of the Christian faith in the Anglican tradition;
  • respect, nurture and value every individual in our community;
  • inspire our boys to open their minds and hearts to strive for their dreams, and to support others in striving for theirs;
  • embrace that which is unique in the creative energy and curiosity of boys so that each may thrive and develop to his full potential;
  • offer an excellent all-round education, leading and sharing innovative technology and practice in teaching and learning;
  • address critical global issues, including the sustainability and regeneration of the natural environment, in the curriculum, in the operation of our school, and in the lives of all in the Bishops community; and
  • contribute actively to transformation to a more just society by embracing and celebrating our heritage in all its diversity.

The Vision Statement captures our ethos and purpose, as well as our ambitions.  The Vision Statement will be prominently displayed on our website and throughout our policies and documents and will serve as a reference against which all strategies and decisions can be tested to ensure that we live up to our ethos and purpose.
