Our school mission is to provide students with opportunities and experiences to enhance their life choices, and thus help them to make a positive contribution to the world that we share.
This essentially means that we still take little acorns and turn them into mature oak trees that know what they are, what they stand for and what their aspirations are.
We also behave and interact on a daily basis in line with our three agreed core values which very much reflect that original belief in standing sure:
Inclusivity: We value the diversity within our school and provide opportunities for all to flourish and achieve their potential in a safe and happy environment.
Respect: We respect ourselves and others, behaving in ways which build trust and create positive relationships; we treat others as we wish to be treated in a happy, kind and supportive environment, forming positive relationships and developing interpersonal skills
Resilience: We value challenge and show the determination to work hard in order to achieve success. We accept mistakes as valuable learning opportunities.
Remarkably, in its near 100-year history, the school has had only six headteachers. It has been my privilege to lead this school for the past fifteen years. As with my predecessors, my responsibility is to ensure that the school continues to stand sure within and for our local community and that it continues to develop as a healthy and mature oak tree.
