The Windsor Way

The Windsor Way is a set of shared values and beliefs that build character and share success.

The Windsor Way is a charter committed to by our whole school community. It celebrates the principles of respect and responsibility and promotes our commitment to British Values (as set out in our Promoting Life in Modern Britain policy). Our active House system emphasises these characteristics every day.

Unlocking students academic and personal potential

Our moral purpose is to unlock students academic and personal potential.

We strive for our students to have a love of learning, be successful learners and gain the knowledge, skills and attributes to be successful in the world of work. Equally, we endeavour for our students to be good human beings, with a sense of purpose and character, enabling them to flourish in life. 

Crucial to our success is a core set of values, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours that our whole school community understand, support and practice.

These beliefs are part of our school culture and a natural part of what we do and how we do it and are on display through daily interaction among our school community.

A culture of respect and responsibility 

We aim to nurture a culture of respect and responsibility for oneself and for others. We value and practice respect and responsibility, as shown below.


  • for myself, other students and all adults, regardless of background, ethnicity, age, gender, ability, values, lifestyles, opinions or interests
  • for the property of the individual, group and school
  • by using language that is not offensive or abusive to others
  • by being open, honest, friendly, and accepting of others
  • by sharing ideas and opinions openly and thoughtfully
  • by listening actively to the ideas and opinions of others.


  • for controlling my own language and behaviour
  • for resolving conflicts and disagreements in a cooperative and peaceful way
  • for completing all work to the best of my ability
  • for asking for support and help when I need it and helping others when they need it
  • for ensuring my own physical and emotional well-being
  • for creating my own success and being resilient in the face of challenge
  • to approach all I do with a positive attitude
  • to see failure as a form of helpful feedback for future growth
  • to follow my dreams no matter what challenges I am faced with.
