Vision and Values
‘Achieve Beyond Expectations’
We believe in a community that nurtures unique individuals into becoming the open minded thinkers and principled adults of a diverse society. We have an ethos of high standards that provides the opportunity to aspire and achieve beyond expectations. We place importance on collaboration within the Trust and beyond, at a national and international level, to bring the best outcomes for our students. We aim to develop enquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect, recognising that other people with their differences can also be right.
Our values prepare the international citizens of tomorrow. We aim to develop reflective, inquiring young minds who understand the value of success and are not afraid to fail or take calculated risks in order to learn. They will be leaders and team-players as well as confident, happy individuals who set themselves challenging life goals.
