Respect is one of the key foundations of our educational philosophy. Respect cannot be forced – if it is to be honest, it has to be earned. No form of community can be truly successful unless its members have respect for each other and for themselves.
Our teachers do not demand respect. Instead they aim to earn the respect of the students through example because they know that unless they have that respect, they will not be able to teach anything that is truly worth learning. For their part, our students have to earn the respect of staff through their behaviour, their willingness to learn and how they treat each other.
By giving and earning respect, our staff and students get to know one another incredibly well – because the basis of it all is being genuine so it demands that we do not present anything other than who we really are.
