The ethos and vision of our school


Raphael Independent School is committed to striving for excellence in all that we do at the school. Our vision is that students become independent, ambitious, resilient learners who strive to do their best for themselves, the school and wider community, at all times because they are motivated, act with integrity, understand the value of teamwork and have an inner confidence. They will be guided by outstanding teachers and support staff who will work as a team to inspire students to be more than they thought they could be.

Our students will be able to contribute positively to the school and wider community, understand how their actions impact on a wider, global world.
