Developing Individual Character - 7 Character Strengths

The 7 Character Strengths underpin the ethos of the school. We want to equip our pupils with the necessary skills to be successful in a rapidly changing world through a challenging and aspirational pastoral programme.

Our 7 Character Strengths are:

  • Curiosity
  • Determination
  • Empathy
  • Enthusiasm
  • Optimism
  • Respect
  • Self-Control

We continually strive to develop these characteristics both inside and outside the classroom. Our aim to ensure that pupils progress into respectful, determined, optimistic and curious individuals who are focused on realising and achieving their potential.

The 7 character strengths are regularly and positively reinforced throughout the year. For example during assemblies, tutor time activities, the behaviour system as well as inter tutor competitions.
