All schools in the Church of England family are committed to a vision encapsulated by John 10.10, ‘ I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’. An education provided in one of our schools should lead us into the knowledge that abundant life awaits them, and give them every opportunity to be set on the path toward it.
St George’s is dedicated to providing this for our pupils, within our own distinctive circumstances. Whilst everything we do is underpinned by John 10.10, we thought it appropriate to choose another verse to guide us in our day to day decisions, one closely related to our values and culture. Having consulted with stakeholders, we settled on Romans 12.10, the favourite with our pupils.
This verse, ‘Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves.’ reflects our expectations. We hope to inspire our pupils to set an example to society by valuing and honouring others, thus demonstrating a commitment to our values which will stay with them for life. Our aim is to help our pupils to have a positive impact on the world, and the people around them.
