Vision and Values
Make a Difference
Our motto is ‘make a difference’ and our students and staff give nothing except our very best in pursuit of making a difference to our own lives and the lives of others around us. They are great ambassadors for the school and local community, always showing kindness and respect.
Three words are crucial to how we guide students to be able to ‘make a difference’: independence, integrity and resilience.
Independence means we support students to develop their skills and attributes so they do not have to depend on others and can think and act for themselves. We set challenging targets and raise aspirations so students can achieve success.
Integrity means staff and students must be fair and truthful and have the courage to take the right action in every situation, even when no-one is looking.
Resilience means we give students the tools to recover from difficulties. We show students how taking risks and making mistakes is all part of the learning journey. We also show students how hard work brings success, and support them to persevere with all challenges.
