Our Mission

“Excellence and Care: the College is working for its Community”

Excellence

The College will give all learners the best possible opportunities to achieve and fulfil their individual potential through high quality teaching, learning and assessment and a broad range of provision, which offers choice and progression.

Care

The College will provide a supportive environment, which responds to individual needs and encourages respect.

Community

The College will serve our local and national community by responding and adapting to the needs of our learners and of our stakeholders.

Mission Focus

Our core values represent the guiding principles of the College.  They support the delivery of our mission and will drive the direction of the College’s leadership.  We believe that outstanding performance cannot be achieved unless we operate by the same values. 

The College Governors undertook a review of its Mission in June 2012.  Following that strategic review, the College is undertaking a process of consultation with students, staff and stakeholders on the following set of core values to underpin our work:

Excellence

We promote excellence in order to provide our students with the best possible opportunities to equip them for their future. An ethos of reflective and shared good practice will underpin a culture of high aspirations, high standards and high achievement which is highly valued by our students and the communities we serve. 

Care

We value our students, staff and governors and their talent and within a framework of support will nurture each student to develop his/her personal potential.

Diversity

We embrace diversity and promote equality of opportunity within a framework of mutual respect.

Integrity

We adhere to high ethical and professional standards in our work and relationships. We are committed to working hard and promoting equity and fairness.
