Excellence Through Endeavour

Values and Ethos

We strive to ensure that all students are valued as individuals, who are recognised for their talents, fully included within the school community and provided with every opportunity to achieve ‘excellence’.

We expect all students to emerge as confident, resilient individuals, who can build positive relationships and demonstrate commitment in everything they do.

We communicate our core beliefs as six guiding values:

  • Community
  • Participation
  • Confidence
  • Readiness
  • Kindness
  • The power of effort

Equality Statement

Equality Objectives 

Equality Objectives 2019-2020 and how we are working towards them.


As part of the School Development and Improvement Plan 2019-2020 we will ensure that these two objectives are achieved:

  1. Opportunities for disadvantaged girls to develop their talents and interests are delivered to an exceptionally high quality.

  2. Attendance rates for SEN, PPG and White British students, in particular boys, are in line with or above national averages.

The school’s senior leaders will report on how we are working towards these objectives at Trust Board meetings throughout the year.
