Our Ethos

Genuinely proud of our ethos, we seek to be a community school where all understand and can shape our ethos together. Our ethos can be summed up in the strapline: Community-Achievement-Growth.


  • We are proud of who we are and where we come from;
  • Families locally deserve the very best education for their children;
  • We believe the school is stronger if we build strong links with parents, local government and community partners;
  • We are individuals and recognise and respect each other’s talents and backgrounds;
  • Our school is a positive, secure and happy environment where everyone has a voice.


  • We are ambitious for the success of all students;
  • We are committed to enabling every young person to flourish and progress, regardless of their starting point;
  • We seek to instil a pride in hard work;
  • We are committed to the highest standards of teaching and Learning;
  • We publicly reward and recognise effort and success


  • We are committed to providing challenging and memorable experiences in school;
  • Our young people are expected to show honesty and respect with peers and teachers;
  • They are encouraged to be proud of themselves, shown by high standards of behaviour and involvement in school life;
  • We want them to show courage, take new challenges in their stride and be strong leaders;
  • We believe that a willingness to learn from mistakes creates persistent and determined students who then develop into confident learners.
