Over 2000 years ago Aristotle said the following, “schools have two roles, to teach students about the best that mankind has thought and created, and to teach good character and values to help students live lives that are meaningful and good.  Schools should prioritise interpersonal exchanges, spirituality, compassion and social concerns, taking into account the collective’s needs rather than merely individuals”.  So, to my way of thinking, a good education is therefore founded on the values that it instils in its community.  After all, once you have forgotten everything that you have learnt at school, it is, as Aristotle observed, simply character that remains.

As I looked this morning at the faces of our Form 8 leavers during our annual leavers service, I was struck once again by just how successful we have been at helping to create and nurture a group of young people with exceptional character.  I am so very proud of them and proud also of the part that our fabulous school has played in setting them on a course for a successful and happy future.  We have done our job well in helping to write their story, now we just have to sit back and watch what they make of it...Good Luck!
