Mission Statement

We are committed to the academic and all-round development of every child in the school.

Our aim is that each child becomes:

• A self-confident, independent, inquiring learner

• A considerate, moral, versatile individual

• A sociable, responsible, tolerant citizen


To achieve this, we work together to provide a learning environment, characterised by:

• High aspirations and clear expectations

• A broad, balanced, well-resourced curriculum

• Responsiveness to each individual’s talents and needs


Our motto from 1884 still reflects our approach to teaching and to learning today:

Fortiter, Fideliter, Feliciter; Bravely, Faithfully, Happily
