Our vision comes to life in our clearly articulated values which are respect for each other, integrity in all that we seek to achieve and the wholehearted pursuit of excellence in both academic attainment and social accomplishments. In working towards making these values visible in every student, we strive to provide a safe, healthy, stimulating and exciting environment for all to work, learn and play in, and in which access for all to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum is free and equal.

Our pupils are encouraged to develop lively enquiring minds, to be capable of independent thought and to appreciate those areas of knowledge and understanding which will nurture wisdom, enable them to take responsibility for themselves and their actions, and prepare them for future life, employment and happiness. Academic excellence, respect and tolerance for others, resilience, self-discipline and self-confidence form the basis of our school's philosophy. Our continuing successes and excellent reputation in the local community are based on a close relationship between well-qualified and dedicated staff, enthusiastic self-reliant and well-behaved pupils and interested, supportive and co-operative parents.
