We have developed a strong sense of identity and co-operation within our school community based upon respect, good manners and mutual tolerance for each other. Our staff, pupils, parents and governors are all responsible in sustaining this sense of community and fairness, and embracing this ethos within society. Our governors are highly committed and dedicated to supporting the spirit of the school and offer clear direction and support.
We instil in our pupils from an early age a desire to help others and encourage them to become good citizens as they grow and mature. Our sense of community is further developed and fostered through our House Buddy system, where the pupils are placed in vertical peer groups. This helps to support younger pupils and provides extra responsibility and an opportunity to act as role models for more senior children.
Each year, our Head Boy and Head Girl select a charity to support through various events and activities. We also support the wider community by heightening the awareness of important issues and raising funds for a variety of charitable causes. We often invite charities to explain the value of their work during assembly so that our pupils can more easily empathise and understand how they can help others.
Our parents enjoy the cohesiveness of a supportive parental network and often build new and life-long family friendships. There is a feeling of unity and trust derived from their children sharing the same experiences, and parents create and benefit from strong, dependable social connections. We are also fortunate in being supported by a proactive Parents’ Association which organise a great number of social opportunities, extend our support for worthwhile initiatives and contribute to the positive and friendly atmosphere within our school community.
