 Strive (verb) to make great efforts to achieve something, to struggle or fight vigorously.

  • Scholarship we value high attainment and aim for mastery for all students
  • Teamwork we are one community, one team working to the same end
  • Resilience whatever it takes, we don’t give up
  • Integrity we show character: respect, honesty, kindness
  • Vision seeing ourselves as part of something bigger, a belief that our life has meaning and value. Asking the question where am I heading and what difference do I want to make
  • Excellence we aim for excellence in everything we do no excuses!
