We exist for one simple moral purpose.
To unlock academic and personal potential
We want our students to aspire and to become all and more than they ever thought they could be. Students who know who they are and the sort of person they want to be; students who have discovered their passions; students who have high hopes and dreams for their futures and a clear sense of purpose; students who want to make a difference in their communities and in the world and therefore students who understand the importance and value of education as a powerful driver for the greater good.
The WAT ASPIRE Mountain, developed for our students, depicts a student at the summit of the Aspire Mountain where their academic and personal potential has been unlocked. WAT equips students with the compass, empowering them to navigate their way to their summit. The four points of the compass are:
We put the compass in the student’s one hand and the world in the other.
We develop high-performing schools that raise aspirations, inspire learning, build character and cultural capital, power social mobility and enable all students to thrive and make a difference in their communities and the world.
Everything we do is underpinned by five values:
Alongside our values, we have five components of the WAT Approach to accomplishing success that are embedded in our Powering into the Second Decade Strategy.
