  • enable open, honest and respectful communication 
  • welcome creative and innovative thinking 
  • support everyone to have the drive and ambition to be their best 
  • assist everyone to try new things, make mistakes and learn from their experiences 
  • develop global citizens who are prepared for their future destinations 
  • promote good mental and physical health, including active lifestyles, organised sport and outdoor experiences 

Our values: 

  • Courage (be brave)
