The Federation Ethos

Our ethos is to create a federation of schools where children succeed and are proud of their achievements. We strive to actively promote British values and prepare our children to become role models, thus preparing them for life in modern Britain. We are a federation that nurtures curiosity and creativity through and inspiring, challenging and engaging curriculum, where our pupils are at the heart of all that we do. Our children learn to become resilient and self-assured in an environment where success is celebrated.
