Values and Ethos

Our Vision

We, the staff and governors, aspire to ensure that each and every student has the opportunity, support and encouragement to achieve the best in their school life and to succeed, irrespective of ability.

Values and Ethos: Create Your Future

‘Create your future’ encapsulates our purpose as a school: to educate, support and nurture all of our students so they can achieve their potential and fulfil their aspirations.

We are a dynamic and diverse school – this means we have a clear energy and purpose and all students are valued equally, regardless of their background or ability.  We pride ourselves on our comprehensive intake and our inclusive approach.

Our principal aim is to encourage high expectations and high standards of achievement, both academic and personal.  Our values embrace honesty, trust, reliability, creativity, respect for the legitimate rights of others, care for the weaker members of society, regard for the environment and a kindness towards other people.

We believe that a calm, friendly, disciplined atmosphere, in which hard work and co-operation are respected, is the best way to promote these values.

Key Features of Our School

British Values

The DfE have emphasised the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”

The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated in 2014. We aim to address the Promotion of British Values by promoting themes such as democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, tolerance and mutual respect. See our British Values statement for further information.
