At Gordon’s we are proud of our high expectations and opportunities provided to ensure our students are world class and have the ability to apply themselves to a variety of challenges that enable them to distinguish themselves from their peers.
Students across all key stages are given the chance to take part in a range of services, both in and out of school, that encourage them to develop their leadership skills and character strengths, in order to become successful future leaders.
We aim to nurture, cultivate and inspire students by empowering them, promoting a ‘can I?’ ethos. Students are guided through a variety of initiatives that encourage them to become independent, empowered and active, global citizens.
Opportunities are available across all aspects of school life from Year 7 upwards. In some cases, staff will select the most appropriate leader e.g. team captain but there are many other opportunities for students to volunteer and to become involved. Students have the opportunity to contribute to the life of their House, to the school as a whole extending to work in the community.
