Our values

At Padworth every individual matters.  There is an unspoken, unwritten code of conduct that reflects our core values: respect, tolerance and a genuine care for each member of the community.  We are a community which celebrates differences through learning from others.

Our educational philosophy aims at:

  • Helping students to gain a deep understanding of their subjects and develop the skills to apply their knowledge to different contexts
  • Enabling students to learn how to think, make sound judgements and respond to questions and challenges – active learners
  • Allowing students to pursue their individual academic interests within the context of their subject to develop their independence and joy of learning
  • Nurturing a close relationship between student and teacher to support each student’s overall personal development

Are you Padworth? If you are a unique individual and open–minded global citizen, we are the right school for you.
