Core Beliefs


  • We believe that success is best achieved when it is built upon an open and supportive partnership between our students, parents, staff and Board of Directors (governors).
  • We believe that every young person is special. We recognise each student has their own unique personality and special talents. We believe every student has something to offer.
  • We believe that all students have the right to feel secure and be able to work and develop their potential.
  • We believe every student deserves the opportunity to achieve. Our systems are designed to reflect and support these beliefs. The schools’ codes of conduct provide a framework for this to occur.
