Sixth form Ethos

Our school is committed to achieving the highest academic standards through a broad and balanced education within a stimulating environment. We also believe academic excellence goes hand in hand with the moral, spiritual and cultural development of the whole person. We want to nurture the individual talents of all our students so that they are able to make a difference in the wider world.

We want our students to be:

  • happy
  • enquiring
  • highly motivated
  • determined
  • able to reach their full potential
  • mindful of the needs of others
  • polite, tolerant and helpful
  • proud of their school.
