Our values

We are committed to the Heart of Mercia Multi-Academy Trust’s mission: providing care and high expectations to help young people grow and acquire the skills to flourish academically and in their wider lives.

We want to give our students an excellent and enjoyable education, preparing them well for the real world – not just as an arena for personal success, but a place that we must nurture and sustain.

We live by our values – community, ambition, the pursuit of knowledge, and resilience. We cultivate our students’ skills to:

• Connect with others and form bonds that will support them in their future lives

• Make ambitious and courageous choices

• Pursue knowledge and apply it to new contexts, creating new ideas and artefacts

• Step into the world as resilient young adults
