Values and ethos

High expectations

Our core values encompass high expectations for all, together with an emphasis on achievement, respect, co-operation and hard work. Together, these form the basis of future success for our young people.


We are a caring school where every child is encouraged to be their best. We value openness and honesty and strive to create an environment where learning is enhanced through positive relationships rather than through punitive action. Our open door policy invites collaboration between staff, students and their families.


At Grey Court we value and celebrate the heritage and diversity of our school community. We are committed to promoting equality of opportunity and tackling discrimination in all its forms. Each student and staff member is valued as an individual and as a member of the school community. We work hard to ensure that all students have full and equal access to the whole curriculum and are able to take part in all aspects of school life.

Our equality policy ensures equal treatment for all regardless of:

  • Race  
  • Disability  
  • Sex 
  • Gender
  • Age  
  • Religion/belief  
  • Sexual orientation  
  • Maternity/Paternity.
