Our aims are: To provide, in our boarding houses, a family environment in which students feel comfortable, happy, safe and secure in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect. To provide equal opportunities for all students, regardless of ability, religion, culture, gender, ethnic origin or class. To encourage tolerance, a generous spirit, understanding and positive interaction between students, and to have regard for each other's privacy and possessions. To provide the conditions for students to develop their intellectual talents through a managed environment. To provide activities and projects, appropriate to age and maturity, that will encourage each student to develop spiritually, culturally, morally and socially. To develop students' responsibility - for themselves, for others and for their environment - and, through this, to develop their leadership qualities and to exhibit self-belief. Our systems are built around our pastoral aims, which closely reflect the Wycliffe ethos and our aim of developing the whole person.
