Vision & Values
“Learning Schools Trust will operate outstanding schools in which every student, through personalised learning and clear goals, will stretch their boundaries and learn more than they thought possible."
The educational concept is based on four core values which underpin the design and operation of the schools:
ALL PEOPLE ARE DIFFERENT
All people are different and learn in different ways and at different rates. It is our task to meet this challenge. Regardless of his or her ability, each student will have the right to a personal challenge every day.
Learning Schools Trust is committed to providing comprehensive education for all young people without prejudice to race, gender, ability, disability, religion, sexual orientation or socio-economic circumstances.
We see no conflict between the obvious right of each student to receive an education adapted to his or her particular needs and the authority required by teachers to meet their responsibility to guide students toward successful outcomes.
SUCCESS DEPENDS ON CHALLENGING GOALS AND CLEAR REQUIREMENTS
With the support of teachers who are well qualified, stimulating and have high expectations, each student will, through their own hard work, perseverance and ambition stretch their boundaries and learn more than they thought possible. We will highlight good performance as an example to be followed.
We see no conflict between hard work and fun, independent learning and good order. We are not a permissive school that passively waits for students to develop an inclination to learn.
WE EDUCATE FOR LIFE
We will prepare students to live and work in the modern, global society with its ever-changing challenges and difficult choices. “Education for life" gives students the ability to see context and patterns, understand and interpret events, take decisions and make choices. It is a driving force for a continual deepening and broadening of their knowledge, skills and understanding.
“LIFE IS WHAT I MAKE IT"
We will give each student a foundation for personal development where self-discipline, self-knowledge, sense of responsibility and confidence in one´s own ability provide the basis for a constructive attitude, the essence of which is that “life is what I make it".
