To fulfil our mission of improving the future life chances of our young people we ensure that all students leave us with a strong sense of mission and moral purpose.

When they are ready to enter the outside world, we want them to have the skills and experience to become young leaders and influencers, determined to produce a fairer society. To achieve these qualities, we have developed a strong series of leadership opportunities which will allow our young people to gain the self-confidence to lead others.

We develop a young person’s character through the opportunity to lead others. This is not just seen in our combined cadet force, but as sports leaders, classroom leaders and greeters, prefects, school councillors, environmental leaders and a host of other opportunities to lead. These opportunities are further enhanced through annual residential experiences at our partner outdoor pursuit centres and the Duke of Edinburgh Award being a compulsory part of each young person’s curriculum.
