We aspire for our students to thrive academically; flourish and grow as young people. When they leave they will have a strong sense of self, their place in the world and the agency to fulfil their potential.

We will do this by creating a learning community where staff and students are engaged, challenged and inspired, and thus will take risks, make mistakes and learn from them. We will endeavour to develop a sense of wonder in our learning, so that we are inquisitive, critical and curious.

Having consistent boundaries and well-understood routines that everyone knows and understands is the key to feeling safe – and the feeling of safety and security will enable every person in our community to explore, develop and express their individual identities.
