Be Valued: building excellent relationships
We pride ourselves as a school in being able to know and value everyone; recognising the unique contribution from each person. In our school:
We work together
We take an empathetic and restorative approach
We always celebrate and share in success
Be Inspired: promoting exceptional teaching and inspired, enthused learners

Be your Best: providing an enriching Curriculum
We know that our curriculum is how we can ensure that learners succeed academically, socially, physically, spiritually and emotionally. It is what will shape them into ‘life-long’ learners who can use their knowledge, skills and talents to contribute positively to the world in which they are living.
