Vision Statement

Our purpose and values are a culmination of the thoughts and beliefs of the whole school community. Our core purpose is very simple:

“To help every person achieve things they never thought they could.”

This means we help our students to realise what they can really achieve. We provide aspiration through inspirational lessons that challenge students to think and enquire. Our extracurricular activities and educational trips take learning beyond the classroom walls and help our students realise success is open to everybody regardless of who you are or where you come from.

Our core values support our purpose and permeate throughout the school. Everything we do revolves around our core purpose and values.

Respect individuals

Be proud of what we do and what we achieve

Focus on people… we can stand as equals among any social circle

Encourage creativity and collaboration


The entire ethos of the school is underpinned by our Respect Charter, which was devised by members of the Student Leadership Committee (SLC), in consultation with staff. In accordance with our Respect Charter, students and staff are expected to treat other people and the school environment with respect. Its principles are:

We treat everybody with RESPECT.

We treat our school environment and community with RESPECT.

We are RESPONSIBLE for our learning and the learning of others.

We are RESPONSIBLE for our behaviour and how it impacts on others.

We CELEBRATE our ACHIEVEMENTS and the achievements of others.

We are PROUD, INDEPENDENT life-long learners.
