Ethos, Vision, Aims and Values

Glyn School is a vibrant school for boys aged 11 to 16, and a successful mixed Sixth Form.  Founded in 1927, we have a rich history of academic excellence, sporting prowess, artistic achievement and service to the community.  The school carries the responsibility of being graded ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2009 and in 2012.  In 2014 we were designated a Teaching School, one of a select number that represent the most outstanding and innovative practice nationally.  We were also awarded SCITT status in 2015.  Finally, we have the privilege and responsibility of being a founder member of GLF schools, a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) where the focus on collaboration, leadership and school improvement enables students to ‘Grow, Learn and Flourish`.

At Glyn School we hold high expectations of all our students in every respect.  We aspire to provide students with an outstanding learning experience each and every day. Every decision that we make is centred on their learning and achievement as we seek to enable each one to meet and exceed their potential.  Our incredibly dedicated and talented staff never give up on a student.

Glyn School’s Mission Statement

‘Glyn School’s mission is to inspire a love of learning and achievement that is founded on the virtues of integrity, respect and a desire to succeed. Every person is highly valued and expected to achieve their potential, through academic challenge, sporting endeavour and technological innovation’.

Glyn School’s Motto: Learn - Achieve - Enjoy - Succeed

Our newest school motto (introduced in September 2007) articulates all we aspire to in every lesson and for every student.  We want students to be serious about school, but at the same time to enjoy their learning and be inspired by their lessons.  This should lead them to achieve (both in terms of attainment and progress). We strive to ensure that their experience is founded on our eight core values (introduced in 2008).

Learning and Achievement: This is our core business – students learning and working towards outstanding achievement.  We expect students to learn in every lesson and to make progress from whatever their starting point may be.

Challenge and Opportunity: We want our students to be genuinely challenged in their learning so they go on to achieve the very highest standards in all aspects of their school life.  We want students to achieve the very highest standards academically; in the creative and performing arts; technology and in the sporting arena.  For students to reach the very highest standards they must develop resilience.  Resilience means encountering challenges and learning to persevere and bounce back when they fail. 

Community and Enjoyment: We aspire for students to learn and enjoy what real community is and that they make a meaningful contribution to the school and external community – whether it be their Tutor, House, or Year group, whole school or external community.  A key part of living in a community is understanding and participating in healthy competition and challenge.  Therefore, we place real importance to every student participating in activities/competition both in and outside of school.  We need to ensure that the culture in the school is positive and supportive so students can genuinely enjoy their school experience.

Integrity and Respect:  These two values underpin our entire philosophy.  Integrity means ‘doing the right thing, even when someone isn’t looking’.  A school community motivated by integrity and embodying a true understanding of respect and care for others is a successful school.

Tenax propositi ulteriora peto: Firm of purpose I seek for nothing but the best.

We also continue to use the original school motto from 1927. This is an important part of our heritage and a reference point for our ethos.
