Vision and Aims

Inspiration, Confidence, Achievement

At Katharine Lady Berkeley’s School, our vision is that:

  • through excellent teaching, we will inspire all students to develop into eager, confident learners who reach the highest academic attainment of which they are capable, both at school and, in time, beyond
  • through opportunities for cultural and sporting enrichment, we will inspire all students to develop into young people who are fulfilled in their lives
  • through an ethos of care for all, we will enable students to develop into young people who communicate well, are confident in themselves, respectful of others and embrace difference.

In order to achieve the above, our aims are to:

  1. Enable every child to make the best possible progress
  2. Maintain a broad and balanced curriculum with many opportunities for enrichment
  3. Provide outstanding pastoral support, especially for those who need it most
  4. Ensure that all members of the school community are committed to the welfare and progress of the students
  5. Value and support all staff and invest in their professional development
  6. Provide facilities and resources that fully support students’ learning
  7. Link effectively with parents, carers, the local community, other schools, colleges, universities, employers and other partners
  8. Use systems to ensure that we understand the school’s effectiveness and which support our continuous improvement
