St. Bernard’s offers able young boys of diverse backgrounds an exceptionally thorough, rigorous, and enjoyable introduction to learning and community life.  We wish to inspire boys to value hard work and fair play, to develop confidence, consideration for others, and a sense of citizenship, and to have fun while doing these things.

Boys

A good heart is as valuable as a well-stocked, well-trained head.

Community

The glory of this school will always be the people inside it.
