Sexey's vision, values and ethos

Our vision

At Sexey’s, we work together with a determination to be exceptional in all that we do.

Our values

We place students at the heart of everything. Each student is unique and special and joins us with their own individual skills, qualities and aspirations that it is our privilege and responsibility to grow, develop and nurture. At the centre of the school’s ethos you will find our Christian values. We have seven core values: these are the building blocks of our individual character and through these we grow and develop as individuals and as a community.

7 Core Values

Our ethos

Sexey’s is a learning community. We are ambitious for our students’ academic achievement. We pride ourselves in our strong staff and student relationships, ensuring that every student feels safe, happy, cared for and valued. Home to school partnership and support are essential in supporting students in achieving their full potential.

At Sexey’s we value the importance of learning through enrichment and extra-curricular experiences and we strive to provide a wide range of diverse experiences to enable students to develop important life skills including leadership, creativity and problem solving.

We believe we all have the capacity to grow and develop and that this happens in a nurturing and safe environment that we seek to provide at Sexey’s.

We are passionate about preparing Sexey’s students for a life in the ever-changing world of work: ensuring that they leave us with the qualifications, skills and experiences to make certain that they are ready for the next stage in their journey of lifelong learning.

We foster high self-esteem through a ‘can-do’ approach to life. Praise and encouragement, to believe that anything is possible is the rule.stained glass window of a cross from Sexey's Sanctuary

As a school with a large number of boarders, we are first and foremost a community. At Sexey’s traditional values are important and as such the School Song, the national anthem and the school anthem (Jerusalem) are integral to school events and acts of collective worship.

Whilst Sexey’s is a Christian school in ethos and values we believe in freedom of thought, and opportunities for self development through experience are paramount. As a result we are open to the exploration of all ideas and attempt to promote an environment in which students feel safe to explore their spiritual and emotional needs as they search for meaning, joy, contemplation and connectedness as part of their initiation into adult life.
