The 'School Ways'

At Wickersley Partnership Trust, we want to send all our students in to an ever-changing world, able and qualified, to play their full part in it. This means that we want all of our students to start their lives equipped with not only the qualifications, but also the skills and attributes that they will need in order to deal with the challenges of life beyond their time at school. For that reason, we say and do things in a certain way in our Trust schools, referred to as, ‘The School Way.’ Each ‘School Way’ promotes the skills, attributes and key Trust principles our students need in order to develop their independence, responsibility and resilience to have a happy and successful life. It defines who we are and what we stand for at WPT.

They are designed with the students in mind and outline the core values each school feel is central to students success. All staff and students within each school live and breathe the School Way to encourage students to: 

  • make the right decisions 
  • take personal responsibility for their choices
  • take pride in their achievements
  • never give less than their best
  • above all else, dream big.

The School Ways develop a culture of high challenge and low fear across all our schools and deliver a foundation for all our students across WPT to Learn, Believe and Succeed together.
