Values and Ethos


Values and Ethos

The ethos of our school is evident in our vision, our mission statement and our values. It is summed up in our motto – Achieving Excellence Together – which highlights the fact that as a community we strive to be excellent in all that we do. The values, vision, mission statement and motto have been collectively written by members of the school – first outlined by the staff, then developed in consultation with students, parents and governors.


Core Values

As a community, we are:

  • Respectful
  • Courageous
  • Curious
  • Aspirational
  • Honourable



Our vision is that every member of our community will harness the power of education to realise their potential and achieve their dreams.


Mission Statement

We provide a broad education and commit to a well-defined set of values that ensures that our students are happy and have the chance to become the best version of themselves that is possible. We place huge value on the sense of community and belonging at Cansfield High School and firmly believe that when we work together there is no limit on what we can achieve as a school or as individuals.
