Our aim at Southborough High School is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of students, and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
We believe our success with our pupils is in part based upon our own shared values. We are committed to providing a first class education for all pupils whatever their ability or background. We foster the all-round development of each individual so that everyone can make the most of their talents and contribute to the life of the school and the wider community.
We have identified central values upon which to build and sustain our work as a school. We hope that everyone associated with the school will seek to promote these values. At Southborough High we value:
Achievement - We expect to achieve the highest possible standards in all areas of our work with parents and students.
Self-Reliance and Discipline - We consider that an educated person can think for themselves and act in a moral way. We expect pupils to learn to take more responsibility for their own learning as they grow older.
Teamwork - We consider that effective teamwork amongst all staff and students brings the best out of individuals and sparks off creative thinking. We expect people to work together and co-operate.
Endeavour – We believe that hard work and persistence leads to achievement and success. We recognise the importance of attitude, as well as aptitude.
Respect - We expect people to take full account of other people's views and feelings. Considerate behaviour, trust, courtesy and co-operation are all elements of this key value.
Improvement - At Southborough we are always looking for ways to improve both as individuals and as a school.
We hope that everyone associated with Southborough High will promote these values, to help create a positive learning atmosphere where individuals are valued for their own personal strengths. We want everyone to get on well with one another and take pride in our school and local community.
