As part of the presentation Miss Hearle described the school ethos:
‘We aim to ensure that all our students become confident young people, who are resilient and able to face the challenges that life will offer them. As a school we believe it is important that our students develop the skills that will allow them to face success with humility and disappointment with courage, drawing strength from each and every situation in which they find themselves.
Our school ethos is encapsulated in the motto ‘Believe and Achieve’ which was chosen by our student body in recognition of what they view as important for themselves as well as their school.
The ethos of the school encourages already successful, independent learners to become articulate, compassionate citizens of the future, willing and able to participate in the wider community.’
A hundred students took part in the presentation which included drumming, singing, a contemporary dance presentation and the HB Signing Choir. The presentation focused on the importance of standing up for what we believe in, even when that can be a frightening experience. Through the medium of dance, music and signing our young people demonstrated how light can be brought into dark places.
