Our Virtues

Alongside the core academic curriculum, all pupils take part in form activities that support the nurturing of what we perceive to be important personal virtues:

Courage                         

Acting with bravery in fearful situations

Justice                           

Acting with fairness towards others by honouring rights & responsibilities

Honesty                           

Being truthful & sincere

Compassion                           

Exhibiting care & concern

Self-Discipline                           

The ability to control one's feelings & overcome one's weakness

 

Gratitude                           

Feeling & expressing thanks for benefits

Humility                           

Estimating oneself within reasonable limits

Service                           

A humble generosity of time, thought & spirit

Commitment                           

A determined & gracious resolve in the face of challenges

Charity                           

A giving heart, a generous way of viewing others & caring for their needs

Character development is continued through the academy’s rich comprehensive enrichment programme which includes sport, cultural, creative and other activities. This helps them develop key personal skills and aptitudes such as communication, leadership, team work, and problem-solving that are so sought after by today’s top universities and employers.

Additionally, the academy runs a number of ‘Drop-Down’ days where external agencies are welcomed to the academy to deliver sessions that include advice regarding career choices and mock interviews. We also take utilise these days to support the delivery of PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education).
