Vision and values
To provide every pupil with the opportunity to go on to university or pursue the career of their choice.
I'll show heart like Brunel in thought and in deed,
By choosing brilliance, I'll know I'll succeed.
We are true to ourselves and we tell the truth. We show empathy towards others by valuing their feelings and property. We endeavour to do the right things and take responsibility when we have not.
We are excited about learning and are positive in our attitude to live and to school. We see opportunities not obstacles and enjoy the challenges we are set.
We do not settle for the ordinary. We ask challenging questions and are prepared to take risks. By making the right choices, we can be anything we want to be.
We are confident and believe in ourselves. We are able to learn from our experiences and use our mistakes to help us improve. We work hard and never give up.
We think before we act and speak and are kind to others. We are curous about the world around us and love to ask how, why and what if. We make deliberate choices in our pursuit of brilliance.
