An Exceptional School
Our Core Values
Kindness, Ambition, Diligence
To be exceptional we must expect kindness, ambition and diligence from everyone, every day. This ethos is at the centre of whatever we do, whenever we do it and wherever we are. We expect this from every member of the school community, so that we finish each day with exceptional outcomes.
Children should always feel valued, that they belong and can be themselves.
Every student is assigned a tutor and tutor group to ensure daily pastoral care is a central part of their school experience. Our partnerships with parents are also fundamental to the success of our students. Academic reports and parents’ evenings provide regular opportunities to meet with our staff to discuss and celebrate your child’s progress. We also offer workshops and events to help parents support their children through the challenges of adolescence. ‘The Croft’ also provides additional specialised support
for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder, enabling them to play a full part in the life of the school.
Crofton students study a broad and balanced curriculum. At its heart are the traditional academic subjects students require for progression to their next steps in education at the age of 16. Our teachers are highly qualified subject specialists and we are constantly investing in the development of their subject knowledge and teaching skills. This approach consistently leads to high standards in external exams, which show students of all abilities making good progress.
what is expected of them and can expect to be challenged if this expectation is not met.
Student leadership is a vital part of school life. Positions are eagerly contested; successful candidates take their roles seriously and have a significant impact on the leadership of the school. Our four houses – Air, Earth, Fire and Water – were named
by the students and are part of a system that encourages competition and community participation.
