Grit

"I always give 100% and learn from my mistakes"

Professionalism

Expertise

Craftsmanship

Grit is one of our key attributes because it symbolises the importance of developing the character strengths of every pupil. Grit is about persevering, doing multiple drafts of work until it is beautiful, having a growth mindset – a belief that effort rather than innate ability matters most. 

Our school is designed to help every child grow: as human beings, intellectually, in maturity and character. We believe that if a child feels well inside themselves, they achieve more. 

We do this in many ways: 

 

  • rich experiences – cultural, sporting, creative, academic

  • personal support – one to one coaching, tailored support plans

  • small coaching groups – a pupil’s school “family” – a safe space

  • the use of rich texts to explore complex issues
