The opportunity to educate other people’s children is a rare privilege, bringing with it a huge responsibility to provide the best all-round education possible as we aim to prepare young people for happiness and success in their adult lives. At UNACCO SCHOOL, we take this responsibility extremely seriously. We care about the individual and pride ourselves in the warmth of a community in which all our pupils feel valued.
We live in exciting and fast changing times and this means that providing an outstanding, progressive and well-rounded education is more important than ever. Of course examination results matter, but this is just one aspect of our education and pupils are supported to show ambition both within and beyond the classroom.
At UNACCO, we believe that success should be measured not by grades, but by one’s influence on the world. The willingness and ability to learn, to lead and to serve are what enable a life to be both well-lived and worthwhile. To develop a strong character, the children are encouraged to adopt a robust moral code and to embrace wholeheartedly all that UNACCO has to offer. Our busy, structured and purposeful environment produces young men & women who are confident, creative and better team players.
School should be fun and happy children are more likely to be successful. We see it as our responsibility to bring out our childrens’ talents, to broaden their interests and to develop their personal qualities. To do this we aim to foster confidence, perseverance, tolerance and integrity; to enhance communication skills; to embrace creativity; to encourage teamwork; and to promote an open-minded and outward-looking mentality so that our students are ready to make a really positive contribution to their wider community.
Tradition is important here and still shapes some of our guiding principles but we seek to build on the past while looking to the future. UNACCO SCHOOL is a forward-thinking school that enthusiastically embraces innovation and new opportunity – a wonderful place in which it is a delight to work and which I hope you will wish to learn more about.
