Our Ethos and Core Values

Why FPS?

We combine our core values with cutting edge & innovative teaching, set in well-resourced and vibrant learning environments. We are structured as mini schools within a larger school environment, each with their own Head of mini school teachers. As a result, the School will ensure every student achieves their full potential with this structure of five age related mini-schools.  Each Head of mini-school also has strategic oversight which will contribute to a whole school strategic priority. 

Our school’s ethos revolves around the following core values:

Infinite Opportunities

We ensure our learners have unique learning experiences that allow them to reach new heights and flourish socially, emotionally and academically, with the safety and wellbeing of our learners always of paramount importance.

Family First

We care about each other. Our family is made up of teachers, parents, pupils, friends and specialist industry partners. We provide our learners with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in an ever-changing digital world. As we adapt to the evolving demands of the 21st century and the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we ensure that the appropriate support and training is available to all.

  • Teachers do know their students by name here – and community, individualised learning and care of children is meaningful and real.
