College Vision & Ethos

College Ethos & Vision

Our vision is to be the leading independent sixth form college. We aim to provide a transformational education that positions our students to fulfil their ambitions and succeed in their future careers.

The College's ethos can be summarised by its collective values and mission.

College Values 

We are guided by a set of core values:

  • Self-belief: By the time our students leave, we want them to have a true sense of self-belief. They need to be able to stand up for themselves and be ambitious and optimistic in the face of adversity
  • Openness: We expect our students to celebrate their own individuality and to respect the differentness of others. We embrace diversity and believe diversity brings new voices, viewpoints, and ideas to the world around us
  • Excellence: We teach students to never compromise their high standards and to be ambitious. Everything is done to the best of our ability and driven by a passion to achieve our goals
  • CuriosityLearning as a way of life. We challenge, we embrace different perspectives, and we think creatively to build our future
