2   To help pupils acquire knowledge and skills relevant to adult life and employment in a fast changing world.

3   To help pupils develop as moral caring individuals, sensitive to the needs of others and tolerant of other races, religions and ways of life.

4   To help pupils achieve corporate and self discipline.

5   To help pupils enjoy, explore, appreciate and express themselves through creative and aesthetic activities.

6   To help pupils develop an interest in leisure activities, sports and hobbies in order to widen their horizons.

7   To help pupils use language and numbers effectively and to appreciate the value of Science.

8   To help pupils understand the world in which they live and the interdependence of individuals, groups and nations.

9   To create a school community in which pupils can live a full, happy and secure life.

With the support of pupils’ parents we expect to realise these aims and to equip our young people academically to get the most from their secondary education.  We expect pupils to have respect for authority, and also the necessary independence and initiative to meet the many challenges they will face, in all aspects of their lives in the future.
