The Willowridge Ethos
The ethos of our school is embodied in Our Mission, which is to provide an environment which is conducive to a complete and full realization of our pupils’ potential so that they can fulfil their role responsibly within the community of which they are an integral part.
We acknowledge that a school ethos, which promotes a happy, vibrant atmosphere, must recognise the basic human rights in our Constitution.
We acknowledge the right of every pupil to his or her own religious convictions but at the same time believe in the foundational values of Christianity.
We commit ourselves to multi-racial and multi-cultural education within an ethos of work-centred, skills-based learning, which promotes a critical and enquiring mind and a creative spirit.
