OUR AIMS & ETHOS
At CCCS we are committed to developing and providing an environment that is stimulating, challenging and exciting and where pupils therefore feel fulfilled and confident in themselves.
We aim to get the best from every child in our school by setting high standards; through dynamic teaching; by focusing on the child as an individual; and by ensuring that in all areas of school life there is a positive and encouraging atmosphere where pupils learn to think for themselves and to acquire the skills of independent learning.
"The School's excellent staff is surely key to all the aspects of the school that we value the most. Every teacher is outstanding, and the School could not have had a better leadership team"
We expect good manners and common courtesy towards all people in all situations and promote appreciation of, and respect for, difference: everyone here should feel valued and an important part of our community.
We believe that this can be most effectively achieved if there is a healthy partnership between the School, pupils and parents. As a school rooted in Christian traditions, we have, as a central purpose, the development of the charitable, spiritual and moral lives of our pupils.
We encourage pupils to approach new challenges with confidence, not fearing failure but learning from it. Finally, we aim to produce pupils who are resourceful, motivated, imaginative and reflective so that when they leave our school, they will relish the challenges of life and be ready to flourish at their chosen senior schools.
“Christ Church Cathedral School is compact and homely and ‘lived in’ – there’s nothing spangly or shiny or polished about it, but it has a kind of likable, intellectual energy about it”
