Head Teacher’s Philosophy
All encompassing and comprises a million little things every day, based around our core mantra of Work Hard, Do Good and Engage. Expectations and aspirations are high, but they are individually tailored: pupils are judged against their potential and encouraged to focus on performing at their personal best. We embrace a culture of kindness in which everyone contributes to the lives of others.
No-one on the bench philosophy means every individual makes the most of their talents and engages with a wealth of extraordinary opportunities available to them. We are constantly seeking to improve and refine what we do and embrace innovation in order to provide the very best education possible. Above all, the school exists for the benefit of the pupils.
