Alice Smith has a rich heritage of educational excellence with a strong culture of nurturing and developing the attributes needed for success in our young people that will enable them to flourish in life. As a community, we strive to build upon these strengths and further raise our ambitions for quality and excellence as a regional and world leader for learning.
Pivotal to our vision for the future is that Alice Smith is a world class school environment where caring and inspirational teachers; happy, determined and motivated children; and encouraging, supportive parents develop practices and partnerships for learning excellence for the 21st century.
At Alice Smith, we seek to develop the broad range of qualities and skills outside of “academics” that are essential for individuals to have a successful life. An important part of this is nurturing and developing creativity and curiosity in our young people, along with their resilience, persistence and perseverance. Emphasis is given to how we can understand and assess each child’s personal development in essential life skills such as their level of emotional intelligence, their strength of character and their willingness to face challenges.
The breadth, scope, challenge and quality of our expansive programme of wider learning and enrichment, together with the care, attention and support for the positive well-being of each individual, lays the foundation for a positive and dynamic learning environment for every child.
These key features of our school support us in our vision “to lead the pursuit of excellence in learning through nurturing, inspiring and enriching the lives and characters of young people”.
