Our attitude and approach to our work as a school are embodied in our ‘mission statement’ and our aims have been expressed in general terms in the introduction.
The following is a more formal statement.
The overall aim is to contribute as much as possible to the development of young people equipped to live life to the full, in a responsible way, when they leave school. This means giving due regard to their social, moral, cultural, spiritual and physical development as well as their intellectual and vocational needs. The school, therefore, aims:
1. To provide courses appropriate to the aptitudes and interests of pupils at all levels in order to develop the knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes needed to fulfil their Further and Higher Education and career aspirations.
2. To develop in pupils a respect for others; an understanding and appreciation of their personal responsibilities to the family, the school and the wider community.
3. To develop personal qualities such as endeavour, perseverance, initiative, pride in achievement, loyalty, honesty and polite and considerate behaviour.
4. To encourage the active involvement of pupils in the community life of the school.
