Preston School Vision

At Preston School we recognise a core set of values. Inherent in these values is the overriding belief that all students must aspire to succeed in our two core purposes as a school:

  1. Helping all students to have the communication, interpersonal and leadership skills to be successful in whichever walk of life they choose.
  2. To ensure all students leave Preston School having maximised their academic potential and gained the best grades possible.

In order to achieve this we…

  • Recognise the worth of each individual, by valuing the personal qualities they demonstrate in their learning, living and working.
  • Ensure that we commit to ‘Bringing Learning to Life & Life to Learning’ for all students, connecting them with the wider local, national and international communities.
  • Embrace difference by valuing diversity in all protected characteristics, including ethnicity, religion, sexuality, special educational need, nationality and race.
  • Display integrity, by valuing openness, trust, negotiation, fairness, honesty and respect for all people.
  • Foster ambition and independent spirit by valuing each individual’s abilities, aspirations and desire to explore and create. We aim to be GREAT in everything that we do.
  • We acknowledge the role of networks by valuing the way in which people can work together and collaborate.
