Our Vision, Values and Aims


"Promoting excellence to enable all students to be happy and achieve their potential".


- To maintain the highest expectations for all our students and seek excellence in everything we do;

- To instil traditional values such as courtesy and consideration for others;

- To develop every child's talents and interests, and broaden their horizons;

- To provide outstanding academic, social, spiritual and cultural education;

- To maintain a varied and enriched curriculum to develop confident, creative, articulate and distinctive young people;

- To prepare students to be independent, resilient and life-long learners:

- To see learning through failure as essential for achieving success;

- To develop local, regional, national and international partnerships and constantly look for opportunities to extend learning;

- To encourage all parents to take an active interest in their child's education;

- To send into society level headed and compassionate young people who are a credit to themselves and the school.



- We believe that a happy and inspiring school community will lead to outstanding achievement in all areas of school life.

- Traditional values are important to us. We expect our students to be honest, respectful, considerate, caring, friendly and help others at all times.

- We believe in an inclusive community and focus on the needs of individuals. We expect students to respect the views and beliefs of others and demonstrate tolerance and understanding.


- Students should be excited, engaged and challenged in their learning. We recruit specialist teachers who are passionate, enthusiastic and have great imagination for communicating their subject.

- We believe taking responsibility is part of growing up. We expect students to have an outstanding attitude to learning and a desire to constantly improve.

- We believe students should question, think and take risks as part of the education process and work independently to prepare themselves fully for life after school.


- We expect exemplary behaviour both in and out of school. We recognise that our reputation helps open doors to opportunities for our students.

- We believe it is important to develop the whole person, building self-confidence and developing team working skills. One way we do this is through an outstanding programme of extra-curricular activities including sports, arts, clubs and societies.

- We are constantly looking to innovate. We expect students to be willing to get involved and try new things both within the school and the wider community.
