 Aims and Ethos

Within the Collegiate it is our aim to encourage all of our pupils to make the most of their individual potential and to allow them to develop the skills and knowledge they need as they move into the rapidly changing world of the 21st century.

We seek to do this within a caring supportive environment where each member of the school community, pupils and staff alike, is recognised as unique and thus respected and appreciated as a person of importance.

We aim to provide a broad, balanced and coherent curriculum which offers learning experiences which allow pupils to develop inquiring minds, to be capable of independent thought, expression and action and to find continuing enjoyment and a sense of achievement in learning and discovery.
By encouraging all pupils to develop as fully as possible their abilities, interests and aptitudes, both within and without the classroom, in curricular and extra-curricular activities, we aim to enable pupils to develop the personal and social skills necessary to life now and in the future.

We also seek to encourage each pupil to develop an awareness of the spiritual dimension of life: to develop moral and ethical values consonant with the ethos of the school and the community and to respect and tolerate the rights of others to have different beliefs, views and customs.

We also wish to involve parents in the school’s activities and processes wherever possible and appropriate and to foster and develop links between school and the wider community.
