Our Vision and Values

Our school is a member of the ‘Good Shepherd Trust’ and our core Christian values are at the heart of everything we do.

We believe:

  • Everyone has something to offer.
  • We are on a shared journey, being there for each other and not feeling isolated.
  • We are here for the whole person, spiritually, morally and socially.
  • A school should work with transparency

Who are we and why are we here?

We seek to be a place that inspires all children to become their best selves.To follow the example of Jesus as we learn to use our gifts and talents to serve one another, the local community and the wider world. 

" Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colours in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand- shine! Keep open house;be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven." Matthew 5 v 14-16

Our school sits on the Whitfield Estate and we work with the estate closely, our school meals even come from the local pub, owned by the estate.The school is over 250 years old and was established by ancestors of the current estate owners to provide education for the village children- both boys and girls. Thus the original foundation of this special school was set up for equality from the outset. We still hold equality and diversity as key elements of our school ethos.

We want to create a school family that lives well together and share what we have with the our local and global community.
