Values and Ethos

Vision Statement

We continually strive to:

Provide outstanding educational standards and outcomes, driven by our Dedication to Excellence.
Develop the whole child, enhancing their character through our LORIC skills and core values.
Promote a culture of inclusion, equality and diversity.

Personal Development

The five key skills and values that we promote through LORIC are those that employers’ colleges and universities consider to be most desirable:

• Leadership
• Organisation
• Resilience
• Initiative
• Communication

Students develop their LORIC skills and values through our ‘Character and Culture’ programme. This begins in Y7 and continues through to Y11, with students participating in a range of activities and experiences. These activities are promoted and undertaken in personal development time, curriculum lessons, character and culture days and enrichment opportunities. We believe that the ‘Character and Culture’ programme enhances the development of the whole child, preparing them for life beyond Up Holland High School.
