Ethos & Values | Rainhill High School

Ethos & Values

Mission Statement and Values - ‘In Pursuit of excellence’ – Learn, Think, Contribute, Care.

The Rainhill community values everyone equally, regardless of background or experience. Our aim is to ensure that students leave us as happy, self-assured and independent individuals with a clear sense of social responsibility and the skills and qualifications to take their next steps confidently. We seek to raise the aspirations and self-belief of every child to reach their full potential.

The culture of the school is compassionate and accepting of difference and one in which students can express their own ideas and flourish as individuals. We expect our students to be able to thrive in modern Britain as a result of their time with us.

The school offers a broad and balanced ambitious curriculum, through which, it develops the academic knowledge, cultural capital and skills of its children. Through their varied experiences at school we foster the moral, social, spiritual and cultural development of each individual. We aim to provide the best level of care, learning and individual development of every one of our students.

Our expectation is that the behaviour and actions of Trustees, Governors, staff and students reflect our mission and values on a daily basis.
