WHO ARE WE AND WHAT DO WE STAND FOR?
AN INCLUSIVE SCHOOL
We seek to draw on the talents each student possesses as a starting point for realising their unique potential so that not only do they benefit personally, but so does whatever society they are part of.
WE ARE FAMILY – LOOKING AFTER EACH OTHER
A strong sense of belonging and caring for each other is fostered through all of the school’s structures and systems; supplementing this is the availability of a suite of on-site student support agencies.
INDIVIDUALITY MATTERS – SEE POTENTIAL IN EVERYONE
We start with Identity.
Who you are is the very essence of being. We very much value the uniqueness of each student – each with their own personality, aptitude and strengths.
EMBRACING CHANGE THROUGH CHALLENGE, INQUIRY, EVIDENCE AND INNOVATION
Success for each student is a whole school expectation and our curriculum /timetable is designed to be flexible to enable this to happen.
We have a national reputation for being an innovative school .
LEARNING AND TEACHING IS THE BUSINESS
We have high quality teachers who believe in our students.
Positive relationships between the teacher and student are the norm – learning is seen as a partnership.
GREAT EXPECTATIONS AND WIDE-RANGING LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
We are a school that holds high ambitions for our students. Success for each student is a whole school expectation.
WHAT CAN WE OFFER YOUR CHILD…
We recognise the individual talents of all our students then cater to these talents through a wide range of sports, arts, cultural and other fields encouraging each child to aim high and grow on their personal strengths.
