As a school, as well as playing a vital role in our students' academic development, we also play a significant role in their social development. Our aim is to create an environment where students can work purposefully, feel secure, be happy and confident, and where relationships between staff and students and between students themselves are based on Islamic values of mutual respect and tolerance.
Beyond this, we hope to instil in our students respectful behaviour towards parents, elders, siblings, relatives and the wider society as a whole.
We believe in the importance of encouragement as being central to the cultivation of good conduct, self-esteem and self-discipline. While there are sanctions for misbehaviour, we believe that positive reinforcement is more effective in motivating students to conduct themselves in a polite and exemplary manner.
House Points are rewarded regularly to students who demonstrate exemplary behaviour.
Students are encouraged to keep a record of their achievements both in and out of school. Students have the opportunity to take part in many courses and experiences such as Outward Bound, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, LAMDA, and various other courses. The school encourages students to participate in as many suitable experiences as possible, in particular those that will teach them skills such as leadership, teamwork, altruism, and self-confidence.
In every Form Group there is an opportunity for leadership and teamwork. Each Form elects a Prefect, a member of the Student Council, and a Representative from each House. By giving students responsibility across the Form groups, they are encouraged to look for opportunities to show their talents, maturity, and care for their peers and the school environment.
Please read our Students Behaviour Policy for more information (available here).
