At Gryphon School we are all learners.
We value learning and see it as a lifelong process. We seek to create an open and creative community where all are valued and all are supported and challenged to be the best they can possibly be.
Our community is based on honesty, integrity and responsibility borne out of mutual respect. At Gryphon School we respond to challenges in creative and flexible ways, which demonstrate our values and inspire a positive culture.
Our aim is to create opportunities for pupils to be successful and develop a positive self image.
We cater for both primary and secondary age children, many of whom have an EHCP. Our young people often have, or have had, problems associated with conventional schooling.
We believe that:
The school should be a secure, supportive and challenging environment
All members of the school should respect each other and treat others in the way they would want to be treated themselves
We should all work together to make learning enjoyable and satisfying for everyone; learning should be about passion and ambition with quality at its heart
Everyone should have his or her achievements recognised
We shall work together to build good relationships within and beyond the school gates; we seek to be responsible citizens and actively promote community responsibility and we seek to engender amongst learners a sense of tolerance, understanding and integrity.
Gryphon School provides a high quality education designed to develop students to their full potential – academically, socially and vocationally. Students follow a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum provided throughout the school to ensure a rich and full educational experience.
