Vision and Ethos
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
1 Peter 4:10
The school’s vision is one of Christian service: each of us using our skills and talents to support and serve one another. We extend this service to all, whatever their backgrounds or beliefs; both within the school itself, and the wider community. All are welcomed wholeheartedly into our school family and are nurtured and supported by our harmonious school community. Friendship is a blessing extended to each and every one, as we develop as a community where God’s love, compassion and forgiveness inform our daily lives. We believe that God will guide us all with hope, compassion and wisdom in becoming successful members of a global community.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control..."
Galatians 5 v 22-23
The school’s vision of service (1 Peter 4v10) is complemented by the focus on the Fruits of the Spirit as given in Galatians 5v22-23. As we serve, these characteristics – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control – teach us how we should present ourselves. Focussing on the Fruits of the Spirit has given Collective Worship a cohesive feel and purpose as it teaches pupils how they should deal with one another and with the wider community.
