Our Vision

We want our learners to be aspirational, to set themselves challenging goals and to work hard, growing in confidence and acquiring the skills needed to succeed in these aims.  Working together in partnership, we can support our learners in achieving their goals.  We aim to instil in our learners the belief that learning is limitless, that the world is full of opportunities waiting to be grasped and that through effort and perseverance everyone can achieve.

Our Core Values

Our vision is underpinned by our core values of perseverance, independence, respect, achievement and opportunity which are central to all that we do.  These were devised in consultation with the whole school community and reflect our collaborative approach to all that we do.  Through these values we seek to develop rounded learners who are able to make a positive contribution to society.
