Values and Standards
Our vision is to create a school that delivers excellence in all that it does - with deep learning opportunities for students, which enables them to grow and become confident, knowledgeable and curious individuals and global citizens. We believe in education for the common good as well as education for self-fulfilment. Therefore, the school aims to nurture students who are ambitious for themselves, and the local community, whilst understanding their civic responsibilities.
Our mission, put simply, is for students to reach their academic potential and develop the character skills and leadership qualities they need for success and happiness in life.
It is this mission that drives us closer to realising our vision.
Our core values of humanity, honesty and humility are a guide to the way we do things at Carlton le Willows - how we interact with each other and how we work together to achieve our vision, mission and goals.
Humanity means acting with kindness and compassion.
(Being a take care school)
Honesty means acting with personal and professional integrity.
Humility means acting with calm determination.
(Being of good character)
Nihil Nisi Optimum
nothing but the best
is the high standard to which we aspire.
Carlton le Willows has long had a reputation in the area as a caring school where the high expectations of pupils contributes much to the success they have achieved in examinations over many years.
We are proud of our strong reputation and work hard to ensure every student has the opportunity to better their best. We are committed to achieving our overriding goal that is set out in our motto ‘Nihil Nisi Optimum’ (Nothing but the best).
The motto is our promise to parents, it is a statement of our intent and a description of what we do. Le Willows has served this community since the fifties and several generations of students have come and gone, each richly benefitting from the high standards, high levels of achievement, warm relationships, good discipline and the strong sense of purpose we offer here. We believe we make a difference in the lives of the children with whom we work and we are proud of our record of success.
