Ethos and Values
We are a comprehensive school where every child matters. We endeavour to support all our students to be the best that they can be and we strive to ensure that strong relationships underpin our daily practice. There is a strong emphasis on care as well as both giving responsibility to and expecting responsibility from everyone in our school.
Our vision statement summarises this:
Sandhurst School challenges, supports and inspires every individual to achieve
their best; a sense of belonging is encouraged, responsibility is shared and everyone is valued.
We are an inclusive school that wants to be at the heart of our local community and we work hard to embed a feeling of pride in our school and also to help build a sense of pride in individual students. We praise, reward and value academic success, and day to day in lessons, our main focus is to ensure all students have the opportunity to succeed.
We also believe that education is so much more than exam passes and offer our students the opportunity to join in extra-curricular activities and visits that will help them experience life beyond the classroom. Ofsted recognised our provision for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development as a school strength.
We strive to be an excellent school so that the pursuit of excellence becomes a habit. The ethos of our school is summed up in the quote below:
“At its beating heart the excellent school is a place where people care more than others think is wise, risk more than
others think is safe, dream more than others think is practical and expect more than others think is possible.”
Roy Blatchford, Director National Educational Trust
