Our Values

We are a school built on traditional values. Our ethos and beliefs are evident in 'The Wyrley Way'. This is a charter committed to by our whole school community and celebrates the twin tenets of respect and responsibility.

Our moral purpose is to unlock students’ academic and personal potential. We strive for our students to have a love of learning, be successful learners and gain the knowledge, skills and attributes to be successful in the world of work. Equally, we endeavour for our students to be good human beings, with a sense of purpose and character enabling them to flourish in life.

We are proud to be part of Windsor Academy Trust, which has a strong record of success. Crucial to this success is a core set of values, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours. Our students, teachers, support staff and parents understand, support and practice these values. Daily interactions between and amongst members of our community are based on these beliefs and have become a natural part of what we do and how we do it.

We aim to nurture a culture of respect and responsibility for oneself and for others.
