Vision & Ethos

We believe in an all-round education, combined with a strong community ethos. Holyport College holds high academic aspirations for all pupils. Of equal importance is a commitment to developing the full potential of every child – personally, physically and socially. We will give our students the tools they need to go on to lead independent, purposeful and fulfilled adult lives.

Academic excellence: We aim for every pupil to aspire for and achieve academic success and we will set challenging individual targets. We want every child to fulfil their potential and go on to leading universities and careers.

Skills for life: At the heart of our school is a pastoral care system which is second to none. The staff in our boarding community will enable all pupils to develop strong personal relationships between themselves and with others, and in so doing we will give every child a strong sense of their own self worth. Pupils will not be allowed to let the fear of failure become a stumbling block to success.

A 21st century school: We will equip every student with the tools and understanding they need to move into a technology-centred working environment. IT within the school will allow students and teachers the ability to learn, research and collaborate using IT effectively.

Conduct: We will galvanise a sense of responsibility in every pupil. This includes their conduct and behaviour in every aspect of school life. We will expect them to take responsibility for their learning and to be accountable for their actions. Above all, we expect every pupil to make a positive contribution to the school and to the wider community.

Health and wellbeing: Our students will be healthy, active young people. Participation in sport, dance and other physical activity will be an enriching part of their lives and they will form life-long healthy habits and attitudes.
