Our Mission is:

The rigorous pursuit of excellence balanced by compassionate concern for individuals.

We aim to achieve this by:

Encouraging the growth of intellectual curiosity, creativity and independent learning whilst also preparing each student for the best possible examination results, through a broadly based, coherent and balanced curriculum.

Providing well qualified, inspirational, and dedicated staff, committed to continual professional development, who have high expectations of all pupils, who enjoy teaching and learning, and who enable pupils to fulfil their academic potential within an intellectually vibrant community.

Providing outstanding pastoral care and ensuring that relationships within the school are based on mutual respect within a highly supportive environment.

Encouraging the development in each pupil of self-discipline, responsibility, physical and emotional wellbeing, moral and spiritual values, and consequently the highest possible standards of behaviour, confidence in themselves and consideration for others.

Offering excellent facilities and a wide range of high quality extracurricular activities through which pupils develop a healthy sense of co-operation and competition as well as enjoying their social, sporting and cultural interests for their own sakes.

Preparing pupils for life beyond school through an understanding of higher education and career possibilities, a development of entrepreneurial and leadership skills, an informed appreciation of the diversity of the world and a sense of service to the wider community.

Working in a close and effective partnership with parents and encouraging them to be actively involved in their child’s education.
