Vision, Mission and Values


The school’s vision is focused on our pupils. They are inspired and equipped to develop character and play their full part in the world around them. They are courageous, innovative, caring citizens, making our local community a better place to live.


To provide a unique education, freely available to all, offering academic excellence and taking best practice from state and private sectors. This is summarised in our school motto: ‘Optimum Omnibus - the best for all’.


  • Highest Expectations – we set high standards for ourselves, our students and for each other, in all that we do

  • Highest Aspirations – we give academic achievement and personal development equal importance in our school, enabling our students to be the best they can be, in all aspects of their lives in readiness for life’s challenges ahead as adults.

  • A welcoming and safe community – we welcome all students, offer equality of opportunity, treat each other with respect and encourage resilience while celebrating success
