We expect and encourage our pupils to embrace and develop their learning profiles under the following areas. These are the values we believe will help them develop and grow both in terms of their character and their ability to learn. By placing value on these areas, our students will be able to build their resilience, take responsibility for their successes and be accountable for their actions, and to start their journey to become socially responsible citizens.
Tolerant - Our pupils are encouraged to develop knowledge and cultural sensitivity and tolerance towards their own cultures, as well as the values and traditions of others and the global community. As a school, we recognise, promote and celebrate human diversity.
Principled - Are expected to act with integrity, honesty and with a strong sense of fairness, justice and respect for themselves and others.
Responsible - Are expected to take ownership for their actions and the consequences that accompany them.
Caring - Are expected to be open-minded, empathetic, compassionate and respectful towards the needs and feelings of others. They are also expected to make a positive difference in their school and their wider communities.
Creative - Demonstrate originality and inventiveness in their work and are open and responsive to new and diverse perspectives. They act on creative ideas to make tangible and useful contributions to their community and peers in a range of contexts.
Inquirers - Learn to ask and ponder searching questions related to their learning and plan and carry out investigations linked to these questions. They collect and examine evidence and use a range of cognitive skills to solve problems and evaluate their own and alternative points of view.
Communicators - Learn to share ideas, points of view, and learning in a range of situations with different audiences. They use writing, speaking and a variety of tools to communicate and embrace multilingualism as they expand their ability to communicate in English and other languages
Collaborators - Understand that all members of a team have an important role to play, and they learn to adopt different roles as they work with others in a variety of contexts. They are able to work towards goals alongside and in cooperation with others to accomplish diverse tasks.
Knowledgeable - Learn through a range of themes and subjects and develop proficiency in the sciences, mathematics, technology, English, languages, history and culture, global and local environmental awareness, and the arts.
Resilient - Discover that success is a process that requires hard work and endurance. They learn to see their tasks through to completion and cope with disappointment when success does not come with the first try. They are encouraged to view failure as a learning tool and not to give up until they have accomplished the goal or task.
Open Minded - Consider their own learning and experience. They are able to assess and understand their strengths and limitations, in order to support their own learning and personal development.
