Mission and Values

Our Mission is:

Working together to achieve the best life and work outcomes for pupils and students.

We achieve our mission through excellence in teaching and learning, quality and reputation.

 

The OHC&AT Values are to:

Develop outstanding teaching and learning with a rich and personalised curriculum which fosters creativity, independence and innovation.

H   Develop high quality leadership & structures which support learning, development and achievement. We will extend leadership and development opportunities for staff and students.

Build strong community relationships and a reputation for excellence so that our College Centres and Academies become the first choice for students who require a personalised approach. We will create a cohesive community where students, teachers, governors, parents, partner providers and businesses collaborate together for the good of all.

A  Raise standards of achievement and aspirations so that our College and Academies are in line with the top 25% of similar providers nationally. We will set challenging targets which encourage staff and pupils/students to outperform expectations and improve on their previous best.

Deploy new design technologies and keep pace with technological developments, enabling students to be innovative and creative, drawing on their technological understanding and skills to produce designs and manufacture prototypes. We will develop skills so that our students can think, design and shape their future.

This is a very exciting and pivotal moment in the lives of St Dominic’s, Brantridge and Grafham Grange schools.  Academy conversion under the sponsorship of Orchard Hill College Academy Trust will help secure their futures and, no doubt, lead to better outcomes for pupils and students, families and carers, staff and all stakeholders.

Ken Cowdery, Chair of Governors
