Ethos and Values

Our School Mission Statement is: “A learning community in pursuit of excellence”.

Governors adopted this simple statement of the mission of our school because it reflects three key areas of school life:

Learning is the main purpose of our school. Our students will be educated to be independent learners who take responsibility for their own learning.

- People in our school community are to be treated equally and with fairness and respect. Students will have respect for themselves, for others and for their environment.

Excellence is something all students and adults working in the school should aim for in every aspect of school life. Everyone is capable of excellence and can show it through how they communicate with and care for each other, through their extra–curricular achievements and through standards of teaching and of learning.

The school is driven by a set of core values that underpin everything we do. Our home - school agreement policy expects that all members of our community will support these values in order to create a “learning community in pursuit of excellence”.
