For our boys, their time at school is about more than preparation for exams, it is preparation for life. We believe that an education rooted in teaching character is what sets our boys apart.
The eight values that we uphold were originally identified by the Jubilee Centre for Character and Values, ‘a pioneering interdisciplinary research centre focussing on character, virtues and values in the interest of human flourishing…’ because that is exactly what we want – for our boys to flourish.
Through Justice, Gratitude, Self-Discipline, Love, Honesty, Humility, Courage and Service, we teach our boys how to be kind and offer help where it is needed; to play fair and tell the truth no matter who is listening; to join in and play their part whilst letting others be heard; to appreciate the world around them and how valuable their contribution is and always to have a go.
In addition to underpinning social and emotional development, a Values-based Education creates the environment where our learners flourish.
We have a duty to actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Our school values help us to do this.
