This ethos underpins our core values:
Ambition – to achieve the best for ourselves and others
Confidence – to have the courage of our convictions and to take risks in the right cause
Creativity – to imagine possibilities and make them real
Respect – for ourselves and others in all that we do
Enthusiasm – to seek opportunity, find what is good and pursue talents and interests
Determination – to overcome obstacles and reach success
Our values were selected in consultation with United Learning students and staff across the country. The story of our values is reflective of our mission to put the young people we serve, at the heart of all we do. As a single organisation, we seek to bring together the best of independent and state sectors, respecting both traditions and learning from each.
We believe that each of our schools is and should be distinctive – each is committed to developing its own strengths and identity while sharing our core values as institutions which promote service, compassion and generosity. This ethos is our expression of our Christian roots, in schools which are fully inclusive and both welcome and respect students and staff of all faiths and none.
We have been awarded Communication Friendly School Status and Emotionally Friendly School Status.
We are currently working towards accreditation of the Unicef Rights Respecting Schools’ Award.
