The Regis School is now a Nationally recognised ‘School of Character’

We are both delighted and proud that we have received the ‘School of Character Kite Mark’ (one of only 30 schools nationally to receive this prestigious award). The kite Mark is awarded to schools that take an explicit, planned, and reflective approach to the cultivation of character in their pupils; ensuring students are well rounded and leave school as productive young adults, kind citizens and motivated lifelong learners. Assessors from the Association of Character Education spent the day in school on Tuesday visiting lessons and talking to students, staff and governors. They were thrilled with what they saw and gave specific mention to:


· The varied and inclusive extra-curricular offer

· The deeply engrained moral virtues the students show, linked to the school’s Regis 10

· The clear vision that the school has that raises aspirations through it’s ‘limitless ambition’ motto

· The positive role models that students are exposed to, from alumni, to staff and older students

· The clear intent to develop cultural capital, opening the eyes of TRS students to the wider world and all the opportunities it offers

· The commitment to listening and acting on student voice

· The sense of family in the school, built on positive relationships between staff and students

· The excellent tutor programme, that explicitly teaches the students character education

· The strongest student leadership the assessors had ever seen in all the schools they visit


Our student voice was particularly powerful on the day;

‘Teachers at TRS help us persevere and get better every day’

‘The alumni show us that our neighbours and people who live in our town, who came to this school, have excelled. That means we can too and that is inspirational’

‘We have so many clubs where we can try new things and make friends’

‘I wish everyone could learn the Regis 10; I think that would make the world a better place’

Well done to everyone involved, with a special thanks to Mrs Saunders who does an outstanding job leading on Education with Character at TRS.
