De La Salle School is a small, thriving Catholic comprehensive school for boys and girls aged from eleven to sixteen. Our school is situated on the northern side of Basildon in one of the most attractive sites in South Essex. As a Catholic school we respect and value all faiths, beliefs and cultures and welcome pupils who wish to share in a Catholic education.
We place great emphasis on:
- developing spiritual, social and moral core values for all members of the community
- identifying, nurturing and monitoring individual talents and skills so that all pupils and staff can achieve their full potential
- providing a secure, happy and purposeful learning environment in which the highest academic standards can be achieved and maintained
- fostering a spirit of respect and service within our local and wider community
- providing excellent facilities with extensive Information and Computer Technology resources
- providing opportunities and challenges to encourage confidence, self-esteem and a true sense of self belief in personal achievement.
Our greatest resource is our team of well-qualified, dedicated staff whose creative professionalism enables each pupil to flourish and realise individual potential.
Parents are always welcome to visit the school in action and we guarantee your personal attention at all times. The success and happiness of your child as a learner is paramount. Parents and teachers working together provide the basis for a happy school experience. I look forward to welcoming you to De La Salle and to your family becoming part of our thriving community.
