Christian, caring and curious
The School aims to provide its pupils with a sound education in accordance with Church of England principles. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers. We seek to offer a safe, caring and intellectually demanding environment to enable all our girls to benefit fully from a sound secondary education.
1. Help the girls to develop lively, inquiring minds, the ability to question, and to argue rationally
2. Help the girls to acquire skills relevant to adult life
3. Teach the girls to respect religious and moral values including having knowledge and understanding of other cultures, religions and ways of life
4. Ensure each girl has access to a curriculum which will enable her to develop her best qualities in mind, body and spirit and help her to aim for the highest achievements her abilities will allow
5. Give girls a knowledge and appreciation of human achievements in the fields of Art, Music, Science, Literature, Technology, and Sport and prepare them to make their own contribution to these areas according to their abilities
6. Promote among the girls an understanding of the existing social, economic and political order and help them to look on these with a reasoned set of attitudes, values and beliefs
7. Promote an awareness of community and society and help them to show concern for the environment; help each girl to develop a sense of self-respect and the ability to develop as an independent self-motivated adult, contributing positively to the society of which she is a member.
The ethos of the school is that of a caring and purposeful Christian community. Each member of the community is made aware of the high standards of behaviour and work which are expected. Staff and pupils are expected to show kind, respectful and tolerant attitudes to others both inside and outside the classroom. The school rules regarding issues such as uniform and homework are enforced and parents are expected to support the school in these areas.
As a Church of England school, we believe that worship is central to the daily life of the school. It affirms our identity and reinforces the Christian values of our school. The programme of Collective Worship within the school is planned and co-ordinated by our Chaplain to provide whole school worship on four days of the week and form-based or year group worship on one day of the week. Our worship reminds us of our beliefs and hopes, reinforces our corporate identity, provides a focal point which gives the community and the individuals in it an understanding of the shape, meaning and purpose of their lives.
Pupils in all year groups are encouraged to contribute to the wider life of the school and to participate in or set up extra-curricular clubs and activities.
An Activities Week in the Summer term sees girls participate in visits and activities at home and abroad. The school has a sense of joy about it and we are very proud of our motto,
I have a goodly heritage.
