We believe that all our students and pupils, regardless of their ability, background or circumstance have the right to an academic education. We don’t think there is anything elitist about this aspiration. What we do think is elitist is that only the most able or the privately educated should be able to access an academic education.
What we don’t do is to ‘dumb down’ the academic curriculum for any students or pupils. What we do, is to remove the barriers which prevent students and pupils from accessing the academic curriculum.
What we don’t believe is that the academic curriculum is the only important part of educating our students and pupils. What we do believe is that, in addition to the academic curriculum, all our students and pupils should be educated in the following areas in order to develop the Knowledge, Attitudes, Skills and Habits to open the door to the future of their choice.
Across our secondary schools there are four cornerstones which our ethos is based upon:
- Leadership and Service
- Competition and Physical Endeavour
- Culture, Creativity and Rhetoric
- Academic Aspiration
