Our Values:

‘respect, laugh and learn’
We aim to guide our learners to show respect for themselves, their peers, and the wider community.  We encourage our learners to show compassion, understanding and acceptance of differences and individuality.  We also encourage respect for our environment and the world around us by teaching sustainable living and environmentally friendly practices.  
We need our learners to laugh.  Learning should be fun and we encourage our learners to enjoy and embrace each day of learning.
