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