Vision & Values

Our Mission: We will instil courage, ambition and resilience in every student to empower them to achieve greatness as a global citizen through a combined drive for excellence.

Our Aims: 
To create an academically ambitious co-educational 11-16 school community where students leave with confidence to become successful lifelong learners, to create opportunities for students to prepare for their future economic wellbeing and to develop future leaders who understand the importance of empathy/kindness for others as well as respect/love for themselves.

To create an environment where we educate the whole child through our values-based curriculum. To create a body of students who have courage to act responsibly, to use their integrity in a diverse world and who work together to create an ethos of equality amongst their peers.

To create a learning environment with high academic expectations for all our learners by working with them to build resilience for them to flourish during and beyond their school years.

Our Values

Academic rigour is important. We strive to create a school where students achieve their highest expected results in their GCSEs. We have high expectations of our students for their school and homework, where they are expected to be submit the best work possible. We aim to find a balance between academic learning and a world class character programme. We aim not to be an exam factory as we believe it is equally important for our young people to be academically capable as well as emotionally literate, well-rounded individuals who are highly-employable global citizens.

  • We are a values-based school and received our VBE schools award in summer 2017.
  • We have 12 school values which underpin our culture and ethos.

Our Homily

  • Each value is explored for a month in our weekly assemblies.
  • Our values underpin our curriculum and we look for teachable moments to embed them in the real world. For example in a Drama lesson reading Anne Frank’s Diary we may explore the values of Resilience, Diversity and Kindness when discussing how the Jews were treated by the Nazis.
  • Our rewards celebrate when our values are embodied and our consequences sanction when choices contravene our values.
