Vision and values
At Ark Putney we have a holistic view of educating young people. Our mission statement is;
Preparing every student to be a pillar of any community
By this we mean that we are focusing on developing students to be the very best they can be in all aspects of their lives not only through academic progress but also by developing the soft skills that will enable students to be successful in the world such as good manners and the ability to speak confidently combined with the desire to participate through sport, the arts and contributing to charity and community projects.
This can be illustrated by our core purpose, which is to provide students with:
- An appreciation and curiosity for life and learning
- The courage and ambition to unlock and fulfil their potential
- A desire to contribute to society in a positive way
- A sense of self –awareness, combined with the integrity to be compassionate towards others
The main drivers for this are our Six Pillars as listed below. These permeate academy life and can be seen in everything that we do, think and say at APA. They are also a focus of our assemblies, reflections and tutorial activities. They help to guide us in how we behave, what we do and what kind of people we want to be.
