Raising aspiration underpins everything we do, since lasting success is borne out of an established and clear vision of the future. We are aware of the cumulative impact of the environments an individual inhabits and the experiences they have in shaping their level of aspiration.
Since it is our aim to help empower our students to become future leaders, we seek to engage them in a range of light-bulb moments designed to deepen both their philanthropy and commercial awareness. We set out to achieve this in collaboration with our independent school and corporate partners.
We see it as our moral duty to build awareness of the array of opportunities and networks that exist and encourage our students to appreciate how integral they are to the achievement of their life goals. To this end, we set out to nurture our students’ social and cultural capital by getting them to participate in a range of extra-curricular trips and activities that contribute to increased self-esteem and ambition.
We want our students to turn their talents towards benefitting the wider community and use this as the platform to bring together high ability students from both sectors in social action projects designed to deepen their level of philanthropy and establish new friendships and connections. As students work together within their project teams and take on a variety of different roles through the course of the year, it is our hope that these networks blossom throughout the duration of their school careers and continue to university and beyond.
