Vision, Aims and Values
The Regis School aspires to be an outstanding centre of learning, serving its community and transforming lives. We seek to equip our students for a changing world through building confidence, encouraging creativity and fostering enquiry to achieve excellence. These qualities will allow our students to flourish as leaders of the future and to take their place as caring, ambitious and responsible citizens in their communities.
Academic achievement is at the heart of what we do, ensuring students leave with the highest qualifications that enable them to be competitive in the global economy. We expect our students to ‘learn hard’ and relish the challenge of skills and knowledge acquisition in a wide variety of subject areas.
As part of United Learning, our approach is underpinned by a sense of moral purpose and commitment to doing what is right for children and young people, supporting colleagues to achieve excellence and acting with integrity in all our dealings within and beyond the organisation, in the interests of young people everywhere.
We summarise this ethos (as a United Learning academy) as “The Best in Everyone.” This ethos underpins United Learning core values that we support through our Regis 10, devised by our students:
Ambition: To achieve the best for ourselves and others (R9 Kind, R10 Belief)
Confidence: To have the courage of our convictions and to take risks in the right cause (R8 Independent)
Creativity: To imagine possibilities and make them real (R7 Creative)
Respect: Of ourselves and others in all that we do (R1 Respectful, R2 Listen, R3 Welcoming)
Enthusiasm: To seek opportunity, find what is good and pursue talents and interests (R4 Positive)
Determination: To overcome obstacles and reach success (R5 Determined, R6 Resilient)
These values are delivered through an excellence framework under the following headings which ensure all children excel holistically and also aims that no child is left behind:
The best from everyone
Education with character
Leadership in every role
We expect the highest standards from all students: from their attendance every day and perfect uniform, to their high effort and quality of learning produced, every lesson of every day.
We also expect all members of The Regis School to be leaders and make a positive contribution, thereby ensuring the enormous potential within our community is realised.
We are proud to have received UNICEF’s recognition of our commitment as a Rights Respecting School at level 2, one of only 14 secondary schools in the country to be awarded this showing our empowering of students and upholding their rights.
