Our Visions and Values

Our vision

We want to transform education for the better, raising aspirations in our diverse communities, increasing knowledge and developing the skills our children and young people need to make their lives rewarding and successful.

Our schools will be the first choice for parents because we provide a safe, nurturing environment, excellent academic standards, a rich curriculum, first class support and a wealth of opportunities to learn and grow.

Our mission

We seek for every one of our students and members of staff to enjoy coming to our schools and for all of us to try our very best in everything we do.

We help everybody gain the knowledge, skills and habits that can lead to a happy and successful life, both now and in the future.

We summarise this mission as: “Valuing People, Supporting Personal Best”.

We believe that helping people feel valued increases the chances of them achieving their personal best, which is the highest standard we can expect anybody to achieve.
