Ethos and Values

Our Ethos

High expectations and high achievement rely upon a positive working environment based upon respect. For us, respect means, unconditional positive regard for everyone in our learning community. A strong moral purpose and ensuring that the whole child is developed enables students to grow into independent, responsible young adults who are able to progress to their future careers.

At Cheslyn Hay we strive to ensure that every lesson counts, for every child, every day. This is both in and outside the classroom. We expect teachers to deliver engaging lessons that ensure students are making good progress. For this to happen behaviour must enable every teacher to teach and every child to learn. We expect students to come ready each day to challenge themselves to be the best they can be. We have a wide variety of extracurricular activities to help children develop all their skills and talents and there are many opportunities to develop their leadership skills within the school.

Our Mission

​Cheslyn Hay Academy is committed to doing its best for all its students. We seek to sustain a community that is characterised by openness, warmth, challenge and support where all are encouraged to become independent learners.

Through the development of the whole person, the celebration of each individual and the provision of a wide range of opportunities, we strive to ensure our students become confident and successful. We endeavour to equip our young people with the qualities, qualifications and values that will enable them to lead fulfilling lives and become responsible citizens. Our belief is summed up in the words: high expectation, high achievement.​

We maintain high standards of ethics and behaviour. One of the ways this is done is by not undermining fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Our Aims

Put simply our ambitions for our students are that they are:

  • Safe, happy and cared for in a secure and supportive high school environment
  • Supported and challenged to do their best through excellent teaching, a comprehensive curriculum and a wide variety of experiences
  • Recognised, celebrated and rewarded for all their achievements so they develop confidence and independence
  • Developed emotionally, intellectually and morally so that they are able to be successful in the rapidly changing, multicultural society in which we live
  • Successful, whether through academic qualifications or a more vocational route, so they can move on to the next stage in their life.
