At Broadwater School we strive for excellence in every aspect of our work. The idea contained in our school motto ‘By Increments Conquer’ sets out that students can achieve by breaking challenging tasks into more manageable chunks. High expectations of our students, our staff and our relationships ensure that we are all able to achieve personal, social and academic success.

The school has developed a climate for learning and a sense of community in a friendly, encouraging and positive environment, hence our unique ethos: "We care about our students and know their hopes, dreams and aspirations. We are a school in the community for the community."
