Our school motto underpins our ethos of partnership in the pursuit of high achievement:
“Together We Achieve”
Our mission statement encapsulates our broad educational aims:
“At FHS each individual will realise and achieve their full potential academically, personally and socially through a rich and varied curriculum, state of the art technology and outstanding teaching and learning. We will inspire all members of our community to become global ambassadors in our increasingly interconnected world.”
There are 4 key strategic areas we describe as our “strategic cornerstones” and we believe are key to our ongoing success. We focus on these each year in our school planning to ensure we continue to work towards our mission statement. All 4 areas are underpinned by our advanced and innovative use of New Technology.
- Relentless focus on Teaching and Learning
- A rich and varied curriculum
- Strong code of behaviour
- Rigorous tracking systems and associated intervention
We are a fully inclusive school focused on the needs of each individual; we want all our students to taste success and to be rewarded for that success.
We are a caring community and foster the highest levels of empathy and respect for all members of our community.
We require high standards of behaviour at all times as we know good behaviour is essential for effective learning to take place. We don’t accept any form of bullying, disruption to lessons or rudeness to other members of our community.
As part of our caring attitude, we strive for excellence in all areas and will challenge students appropriately if they don’t meet our high expectations
We are committed to the belief that parents are crucial partners and will keep you regularly informed of progress. It is our expectation that you will support us where there are difficulties and that you will also share in celebrating your son or daughter’s numerous successes during their time with us.
Traditional values of working hard, taking pride in one’s appearance and demonstrating good manners are, we believe, essential ingredients for success at Featherstone. I know that if we work together there is no limit to what our young people can achieve.
