Our mission and motto

Our mission

To help everyone in the school community to be clear about what we are trying to achieve, our simple motto:

Be the best that you can be

encapsulates our intentions:

Respectful  |  Responsible  |  Ready


This motto underpins everything we do, including our approach to Behaviour for Learning. We regularly discuss our motto and mission with students to help them understand what is expected of them.



We are a distinctively warm and inclusive community that is built on relationships of mutual respect and kindness. We recognise and embrace individuality and diversity. We insist on treating each other with dignity and respect and we work hard to ensure that everyone has the right to learn and to feel safe at all times. We understand the importance of happiness in our community and that everyone needs to feel cared for in order to be the best that we can be.



The school is responsible for knowing all of our students and designing a broad and balanced curriculum, taught by specialists, that reflects the different needs of our learners. We work together to support our own success and that of others to achieve our aspirational goals. We promote gold-standard learning, having high expectations for all by encouraging them to think and work hard. We know that being responsive to support and feedback enables us to become successful. We understand how important it is to be healthy physically and mentally. We strive to be resilient in the face of adversity and challenge and know that we have to be responsible to be the best that we can be.



We work together with staff, students and parents to ensure that we are always creative thinkers, ready and able to learn. Students are ready for life beyond school through an extensive personal development programme and enrichment opportunities. We ensure that we are well organised, prepared and we are motivated to become successful. We recognise that this will involve perseverance and we understand that failure is part of our journey to success. We understand that we need to be engaged, motivated and aspirational to be the best that we can be.
