Dame Allan’s exists to provide a first rate education for young people from all cultures and backgrounds within a supportive environment informed by the Schools’ Christian foundation and traditions. Pupils are encouraged to make the best use of their many and varied abilities. The Schools look to establish and maintain high moral standards within a clear framework.
The Schools provide a structure within which skills are learnt and knowledge gained so that pupils may achieve the best academic results of which they are capable. The Schools aim to prepare pupils to flourish as adults in a rapidly changing world.
The Schools also aim to provide a rich mixture of experiences for pupils to develop sporting, artistic, leadership and other talents alongside their academic achievements. They encourage pupils to develop an awareness of their individual strengths and to make full use of them.
The Schools encourage the development of the qualities of self-discipline, self-confidence and independence whilst creating a community in which all members care for each other as in a family. They also emphasise the interdependence of the individual and the community at local, national and international levels and encourage pupils to show care and concern for others.
At the heart of these aims is a concern for each pupil’s welfare and for their positive development as an individual and as a member of the Schools’ community both inside and outside the classroom. This development is to be within an orderly, safe and supportive community in which all members feel comfortable and act with consideration and respect for other people, themselves and the environment.
