Prepared for Excellence (including Rewards)

Prepared for Excellence

Our moral purpose is to unlock students' academic and personal potential.
We strive for our students to have a love of learning, be successful learners and gain the knowledge, skills and attributes to be successful in the world of work. Equally, we endeavour for our students to be good human beings, with a sense of purpose and character, enabling them to flourish in life.
Crucial to our success is a core set of values, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours that our whole school community understand, support and practice.
These beliefs are part of our school culture and a natural part of what we do and how we do it and are on display through daily interaction among our school community.

We aim to nurture a culture of respect and responsibility for oneself and for others. We value and practice respect and responsibility.
We want all students to be Ready, Respectful and Safe

Prepared for Excellence is our way of helping students be the best that they can be, and understand fully their role as a member of our learning community and, indeed, wider society. It is explained fully in our PfE overview document.
