>> CULTURE AND CLIMATE
Our vision for Lordswood School reflects a passionate commitment to learning that is driven by our desire to offer the best possible education for our pupils, working in partnership with parents and the local community. Our school is a welcoming, nurturing environment where all pupils are valued and encouraged to be the best they can be.
Our school motto ‘Learning without Limits’ expresses our deep desire to enable all our pupils to fulfil their greatest potential and to be encouraged to try new things and excel. At Lordswood we follow a values based curriculum to develop confident, resilient and effective citizens. Our key values are “Respect, Honesty and Perseverance” and our pupils draw on these values for all aspects of their school experiences.
A GST school will be characterised by the development of independence of thought and learning in the pursuit of excellence. Students will develop their individual strengths and skills and build the integrity, self-discipline, decision-making and resilience necessary to their own success and that of others.
They will develop an understanding of their social responsibility and the scope they have to make a difference in their local communities and as world citizens. Students will be able to express their opinions and passions articulately and confidently with due consideration for others.
Students will enjoy school and their varied friends and be proud to be part of the school community and Trust family and the opportunities these afford them. Relationships will be characterised by mutual respect, the joint creation of meaning and a commitment to continual learning.
Students will have free access to an extensive range of curriculum enrichment and extra-curricular activities, including residentials that broaden their experiences and horizons. All our extra-curricular opportunities are offered free of charge.
Students will follow a curriculum that both gives them a firm foundation in the disciplines that support all learning, including exceptional English and Mathematics provision, and that will allow them success at the highest levels. Students will achieve academic outcomes well above the national norms and will earn accreditation for their musical, sporting or creative skills through a strong co-curricular programme.
