Our Ethos

Our vision is that Forge Valley School is a safe, inclusive learning community where pupils and staff learn and thrive together. Forge Valley’s ethos is based upon everyone striving to become their very best. 

As a school we believe that ambition and endeavour provide our pupils with the mind-set needed, not only to succeed academically, but in adult life in an ever changing modern world. Our pupils are encouraged to become independent thinkers, develop foresight and believe that with hard work and resilience, they can achieve their dreams. We are an inclusive school which works hard to provide stimulating learning experiences for all our pupils, who are seen as individuals. We work tirelessly to provide a nurturing environment which protects childhood and prepares for adulthood. Everyone at Forge Valley is part of our community, which is founded on empathy, respect, tolerance and equality.

Success at Forge Valley is not just measured in terms of academic performance. We aim to develop our pupils into reflective, confident, innovative, morally grounded, ambitious and resilient individuals ready to take their place in a dynamic and diverse 21st Century.
