As a school we aim to bring out the best in everyone and give students the opportunity to develop into outstanding young people who are well-equipped for the opportunities and challenges they will face during and after their education. The school focuses on maximising students' life chances; developing them both academically and personally by delivering powerful knowledge and providing an education with character.
We are unashamedly ambitious for our students and believe that the school’s first priority is to help them learn. We place this ethos at the heart of every decision we make, asking ‘will this improve students’ learning?’ We have extremely high expectations of our students in terms of conduct, work ethic, uniform and attendance. By doing this we maximise their progress at school and best prepare them for adult life. We are relentless in our pursuit of the small things that we believe have a big impact on school culture and environment and on students’ attitudes to learning.
We believe that all students are capable of making outstanding progress and attaining at the highest level, whatever their starting point. We will not make, nor accept, any excuses for our students; firmly believing that there are no barriers to achievement that cannot be overcome by a determined and resilient student with a supportive school team. As a school we aim to deliver excellence in every lesson, every day. We aim to develop outstanding relationships with parents and carers, recognising their key role in supporting both the college and children.
The bedrock of the school community is built upon excellent relationships between staff and students, and between students themselves. We want to see an atmosphere of positivity and mutual respect throughout the school. We believe that respect should always be given and that all members of the school community should act with humility and understanding at all times.
