Student Charter

Our values define our culture and expectations of each other. They sometimes challenge orthodox thinking yet support the ancient ambition of education; to transform lives for the better through greater understanding.

That’s why we dare to be different.

That’s why we make things happen.

And that’s why we try our best never to be mean.

These values are embedded in our Student Charter which outlines what support students can expect from us, and our expectations of students. You can view the full charter below.
