Values and Vision

Our aspiration is that:

Every Hanley student feels part of a happy, safe school community where they develop self-belief, are listened to and valued.

Each individual develops their unique gifts, talents and abilities, maximising learning opportunities both within and outside the curriculum.

All young people leaving our care move confidently onto further study or employment having enjoyed our long-standing traditions, achieved their full potential and developed the skills and personal qualities that will ensure future success in an ever-changing international society.

We shall achieve this through:

  • A stimulating learning environment, supported by consistent expectations
  • Care, support and intervention that place the individual at the centre of everything that we do
  • Celebration of all forms of success and reward of positive attitude and effort
  • Close partnership between parents, school and the student to support progress
  • A curriculum that promotes understanding and appropriately challenges every student
  • Opportunities outside the curriculum that develop a broader personal development
  • A clear understanding of rights and responsibilities in a global community
