Core Values

Coombe Wood School embraces five core values that permeate every aspect of our curriculum:

Teamwork - Working together and participating effectively is deeply fulfilling for young people as they seek positive experiences. Our school community acts as a cohesive team, ensuring every individual feels supported and valued. Whether it's overcoming academic challenges or personal obstacles, we strive together towards success.

Respect - We believe in modelling high expectations and standards to earn respect and create a nurturing environment. Respect fosters trust and positive relationships, essential for personal and collective growth.

Enjoyment - Enjoyment fuels motivation and opens doors to countless opportunities. Our goal is for students and staff alike to wake up excited about the day ahead, embracing challenges with enthusiasm and resilience.

Discipline - Beyond behaviour policies, discipline involves self-regulation and thoughtful conduct. It's about making choices that uphold a calm and respectful environment, guiding individuals towards their personal best with consistency and determination.

Sportsmanship - Encouraging effort and endeavour in difficult times is key to fostering sportsmanship. We celebrate perseverance and support each other's achievements, embodying empathy and camaraderie in all aspects of school life.

These values extend beyond sports to shape our entire school community, guiding behaviour and learning initiatives. They form the foundation upon which our students develop into well-rounded, responsible young adults.

At Coombe Wood School, we believe in providing comprehensive support for the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental, and physical development of all our students. Upholding British values of respect, tolerance, individual liberty, democracy, and the rule of law is fundamental to our ethos. We encourage understanding and acceptance of diverse viewpoints, fostering a harmonious and inclusive community.
