Behaviour

 

We aim to produce citizens of the world. We want our children to be confident, able people, who possess a sense of personal duty to the community in which they live. We believe that our children should be free to develop their talents and become leaders, both in school and the wider world. 

We will work hard to ensure our children have a clear sense of moral purpose, through which they see and understand the world around them. They will willingly take responsibility for providing an academic, creative, social and sporting lead, for their peers in school and outside.
