World Class Schools
We are proud to have been one of the eight ‘Early Adopter’ members of the World Class Schools Quality Mark.
We believe that we have improved student progress, aspiration and achievement to such an extent that our standards rival those of the best schools internationally.We are preparing young people for a world which is significantly different to that of twenty years ago. Young people need to perform in a diverse global economy which is typified by technological innovation, is highly competitive and where entrepreneurism is celebrated. World Class schools equip students with knowledge, skills and confidence to thrive in a challenging international environment where those who succeed take risks and continually pursue improvement. World Class students are educated to be active and effective citizens who have qualifications which give them choices, and the competences to choose well. They have developed a level of emotional and intellectual literacy which enables them to navigate a potentially bewildering plethora of opportunities and achieve success and contentment for themselves.
A World Class student
- is highly literate scientifically, mathematically, technologically and culturally.
- consistently out-performs students from similar contexts, and is committed to continually improving their performance.
- is an excellent learner, dedicated to life-long learning.
- is a compelling candidate in their field for higher education and/or employment, being globally aware , confident and prepared for life in an international environment.
Our development of student character and international outlook are high priorities for the school. As well as our existing partnerships within the UK as a leading Teaching School and Research School, we have strong links with our exchange schools in France, Spain and Germany.
