Ethos and Values

“Our vision is to be the school of choice for our local community, developing successful young people with high aspirations, who show respect for all and endeavour to become the very best that they can be.”

We ARE Roding Valley High School. Aspiration, Respect and Endeavour are the key attributes that we work hard to instil in our students. We expect everyone in our school to aspire to be the very best that they can be, regardless of ability. We ask everyone to respect each other, to be kind to others, to be tolerant and embrace diversity. Students are expected to work hard, endeavour to achieve challenging goals and we insist on the highest standards of behaviour, uniform and conduct.

Some ways in which we instil our ethos and core values:

  • Extra-curricular activities, trips and visits
