Our values

All members of our School community – students, parents/carers, staff and governors – be they of the Christian faith, of other faiths or of no faith, are bonded by the four values that underpin this purpose:


We nurture wisdom by developing academic habits and skills, emotional intelligence, resilience and creativity in all.

Teach me good judgement and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments. (Psalm 119.66)


We foster integrity by encouraging all young people and adults in our community to match words with deeds, fulfil commitments, and take responsibility for their behaviour.

Show yourself in all respects a model of good works, and in your teaching show sincerity, dignity, and sound speech (Titus 2.7)


We cultivate compassion by valuing each person in our community and empowering them to share their gifts and aspirations.

I give you a new commandment that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. (John 13.34)


We develop excellence by ensuring all in our community do their best, take pride in achievements, and are open to change and learning from others.

Whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10.31)
