Our school community is built upon the Gospel values of love, kindness, charity and forgiveness.
We strive to witness the mission of Jesus Christ and bring the joy of His Good News to all.

The motto of our patron saint permeates all we do: ‘Kindness is the key to all hearts’. St Vincent’s VC Academy is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough and works as a special community within the St Cuthbert’s Multi Academy Trust.

It was established to:
• develop Catholic teaching, traditions and liturgical practice
• deepen and advance the Christian commitment of those entrusted to its care.

The teaching and practice of the Catholic faith for its pupils and staff are fundamental to the life of the school and we work in conjunction with Catholic parents to help fulfil their duties and obligations to the Catholic faith.

All rites and ceremonies are of the Roman Catholic Church.
The school supports the Government’s aim to ensure that every child has the right to fulfil their potential. We aim to implement the outcomes of the ‘Every Child Matters’ strategy by recognising that all children have the right to be healthy, safe, to achieve and to make a positive contribution to the community and to their own economic well-being. As a school we provide a service to ensure these outcomes but we also have more targeted services for those with additional needs.
