Ethos & Values

Our Academy motto is ‘Be inspired and achieve together’.

Our vision is for students and staff at our Academy to be inspired by what they and others do at Arnold Hill and for everyone to achieve the very highest standards. We want all students to regularly experience inspiring teaching and enjoy a wide variety of learning opportunities both in and out of the classroom. We want students to receive consistent, high quality teaching which challenges and develops them, whatever their ability. We want all staff, parents and students to share the same high expectations for students’ behaviour and achievement. We want students to be set ambitious goals and receive the right support and intervention to achieve their maximum potential and be fully prepared for life beyond Arnold Hill.

Our core values are:

  • We all try our best
  • We support each other
  • We keep each other informed
  • We listen to different opinions
  • We are proud to be part of the Academy



The values and beliefs forming the ethos at Arnold Hill Academy are based on the principle of respect, which is a fundamental British Value. Our vision can only be realised through creating the conditions in which learning, creativity and innovation can flourish.
