Our whole school ethos revolves around our school values and drives everything we do – including how we teach, how our curriculum is planned, and how we treat each other. It is vital that the successful applicant not only understands what these values are and why they are important to the school, but shares our belief that each and every value is important in order for children to develop into well-rounded young people ready for the next stage in their lives.
