Our Vision is to become the most outstanding Educational partnership nationally.

Our Mission is to achieve outstanding outcomes for the young people in our community by providing an engaging, challenging and linear learning experience from 3 – 18 that equips them to live happy and success lives.

We will achieve these by:

·         Challenging inequality and closing any identified gaps

·         Continually looking to improve standards of leadership and governance
