Ethos and Values 

Message from the Principal

We are part of Future Academies Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), and share their high standards of excellence. With the support of our sponsors, we are able to engage with the best teachers, the best universities and a wide range of the most prominent employers in the country to ensure that all our children are equipped with the knowledge, aspiration and respect to obtain Libertas per cultum, ‘freedom through education’.  

We create an inclusive environment in which we provide high-quality education, enriching experiences and development of character. All stakeholders in the school share 3 core values;

3 Core Values

· Respect: To have a positive attitude towards oneself and one’s community.

· Aspiration: To have concrete and deliberate goals.

· Knowledge: To actively pursue new understanding and skills.

 Libertas per Cultum

Our vision (libertas per cultum (freedom through education), culture and core values act as the multiplier to make every decision, action and interaction within the academy more effective.

Through ensuring that these values translate to actions and ultimately habits, every single student at The Grange Academy will achieve outcomes that will provide them with them with the freedom to compete with anyone in society, regardless of any challenges that they face. By taking ownership of their actions and understanding that these will determine their future success and create their character as an individual. Our values and associated actions are outlined in our Home-School Agreement (‘The Grange Academy Way’).

We take pride in our shared document that outlines how all stakeholders should work: 



Knowledge: To actively pursue new understanding and skills.

· We see our mistakes as opportunities to learn and improve.

· We arrive at school ready and equipped to learn.

· We take responsibility for our role in our learning at home and in school.

· We always follow instructions the first time from all members of staff.

· We use S.L.A.N.T, and questions to deepen our knowledge and to improve.


Aspiration: To have concrete and deliberate goals.

· We always go into lessons with a positive attitude and desire to do our best and take pride in our work.

· We always set personal, ambitious goals for our futures and are equipped to achieve them.

· We always strive for 100% attendance, and we are on time for school and lessons, every day.

· We always wear our full school uniform with pride.

· We seek opportunities to learn everywhere – at home, through enrichment, within our community.


Respect: To have a positive attitude towards oneself and one’s community.

· We always conduct ourselves considerately and with good manners in and outside of school.

· We support individuals to be the best version of themselves by giving them support and feedback.

· We use S.T.E.P.S, actively listening to each other and demonstrating empathy for others.

· We value one another for being different, stand up to bullying, and accept, include, and empower everyone in our community.

· We take pride in and show respect for our school environment, local community, and ourselves.

The Grange Academy is honoured to serve this community and are privileged to educate its young people. We welcome visits from parents at any point, both prospective and current and I look forward to meeting you all."
