School Ethos


We believe:

  • in providing a climate that encourages students to develop their abilities, gain confidence to play their role as citizens in society and lays the foundation for continuing learning. 
  • in fulfilling the potential of students and teachers. 
  • that students should have a strong sense of worth, self-esteem and development of character.
  • in equality of opportunities for all. 
  • that a purposeful partnership between parents, students and teachers creates the most effective environment for learning. 
  • that supportive relationships with other schools, the local community, business and industry benefit all.


To ensure the fulfilment of our values we aim to: 

  • promote the understanding that education is a lifelong process. 
  • provide a curriculum that matches the ability of each student and allows them to develop their full potential. 
  • develop the academic, personal, spiritual and social aspects of students' lives and encourage adaptability, self-belief and tolerance. 
  • nurture character through the promotion of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. 
  • reward students for their achievements and celebrate success. 
  • ensure that everyone, regardless of race, creed, gender or ability, has equal access to all areas of school life and that cultural diversity is celebrated. 
  • create a welcoming atmosphere in which parents are encouraged to take shared responsibility for their child's education. 
  • sustain mutually supportive links.
