Ethos: High Expectations. No Excuses. No Shortcuts
An environment where it's safe to be happy, and where everyone strives for success
Our founding vision is "to ensure every pupil succeeds, regardless of background or previous attainment, by providing outstanding teaching and pastoral care."
From this vision come our three core values that are communicated to staff, parents and pupils. These values underpin everything we do:
Growth: The conviction that improvement is always possible and the determination to continuously develop.
Fellowship: The knowledge that the interests of others are as important as my own and the commitment to act as a positive member of the community.
Scholarship: The recognition that the acquisition of knowledge and skills is intrinsically valuable and the diligence to pursue mastery of them.
To deliver our vision and values, we make eight promises to every pupil:
Aspiration: We will support and challenge you to aim high and fulfil your ambitions because we believe every pupil can succeed.
Excitement: We will create an exciting school environment that will engage you with learning.
Challenge: We will provide a stretching and challenging curriculum that will interest you and provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to make a valuable contribution to society.
Expertise: We will provide excellent teaching that will help you learn in a way that helps each one of you progress.
Enrichment: We will provide a rich and varied enrichment programme to help you develop as a rounded, skilled individual and give you opportunities to develop passions.
Community: We will create a community of which you feel a part - that you care about, and that cares about you.
Discipline: We will provide a calm, secure and stimulating environment of which you can be proud.
Leadership: We will provide opportunities for you to lead and work as part of a team.
