Ethos, Vision and Values

Bringing out the Best

Oxted School will excel at ‘Bringing out the Best’ in students and staff. We aim to bring out the best in students of all abilities and so increase their life chances for their future success and fulfilment. 

We aim: 

  • to develop self-esteem in all students
  • to challenge all students to achieve their best
  • to encourage positive behaviour, individual responsibility, and ambition
  • to provide a happy, safe, caring, and inclusive environment that values each individual and promotes respect and consideration for others
  • to prepare students to become confident and responsible citizens
  • to provide a broad and balanced curriculum to meet the needs of all students including their personal, social and spiritual development


We have four values which underpin all aspects of school life: Respect, Responsibility, Resilience and Reflection.

We know that if students are respectful, not only to staff but also to themselves, they will create an environment to thrive. By being responsible for their learning, students are empowered to bring out the best in themselves and develop a positive growth mindset. Resilience is an essential ingredient in becoming a successful learner – we want our students to keep trying even when things are hard. Finally, by being reflective, students can learn from their mistakes and improve.




'Leaders and staff have very high expectations and aspirations for all pupils'.
