To aid a harmonious environment we ask all our students to maintain a high standard of behaviour that reflects our core values of SELF-DISCPLINE, ENDEAVOUR and EXCELLENCE.

IN THE SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT

All students will endeavour to:

  • encourage and be supportive of their peers and other members of the school community;
  • show respect to everyone;
  • achieve their personal best in all that they do.

IN THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

All students will endeavour to:

  • develop their Personal Learning and Thinking Skills as set out in the Home-School Agreement;
  • do all that they can to support teachers in delivering the ‘Vision for Learning’ as set out in the Home School Agreement. 

IN THE CORRIDORS

  • When in corridors, all members of the school community will travel with the ‘flow of traffic’ whilst showing courtesy and respect.

IN THE PLAYGROUNDS

All students will endeavour to:

  • show respect for playground equipment and the school environment;
  • be considerate of the people around them;
  • demonstrate positive behaviour and self-discipline;
  • maintain a clean and healthy environment, by ensuring litter is placed in the bin.

IN THE LEARNING RESOURCE CENTRE (LRC)

All students will endeavour to:

  • be silent at all times except when talking to the school librarian;
  • refrain from eating and drinking to protect our books;
  • use the LRC as an academic work space, there to feed their curiosity.

The Sixth Form are to refrain from using the LRC unless they are on Prefect Duty.

All students will endeavour to:

  • maintain good order in the cafe  queue, adopting a single file;
  • show consideration of others by clearing up after themselves.

OUT OF SCHOOL

  • The Sixth Form have the privilege of being allowed out of school during lunch times after they have signed out from reception, and upon their return must sign back in;
  • Members of the public will be impressed with the excellent demeanour and self-discipline that our students display when outside of school – students’ behaviour will not bring the School into disrepute.
