OUR CORE VALUES

Quo Vadis translates as ‘Where Are You Going?’. Our core values hope to capture the role we hope to play in our pupils educational journey.

Quality: Highest quality staff ensure our pupils take pride in the quality of their work.

Understanding: Our teaching staff focus on conceptual understanding to develop key competencies and not just rote learning.

Opportunity: Fostering innovation and imagination, to ensure pupils aim high and seize opportunity.

Value and care: A community of learning is built upon mutual trust between teachers and pupils. We expect our teachers to be caring adults, supporting and scaffolding pupils’ learning to maximise their progress. Our mentoring schemes ensure pupils feel valued, as well as physically and emotionally safe.

Achievement: In our culture it is ‘cool’ to achieve. We recognise and reward success, not just in academia but in all spheres.

Diversity and inclusion: Diversity enhances the depth of idea generation and problem solving ability. Inclusion promotes respect for others and a strong team building environment. We operate a zero tolerance attitude towards bullying and any other behaviour detrimental to the physical and mental well-being of our pupils.

Intellectual curiosity: We foster an intellectual curiosity to develop freedom of thought and expression and where learning occurs both on an individual and group level. We expect our pupils to gradually take responsibility for their own personal and collective learning.

Success and failure: It is important for pupils to learn from their failures, to persevere in the face of adversity, and to learn to turn mistakes into opportunities. This builds their confidence and encourages thoughtful risk taking, maximising their success when facing new challenges.
