Our motto across The Cornerstone Academy Trust (TCAT) is "Fortune Favours the Brave" and our values include individual liberty and respect for other religions and cultures. These are discussed explicitly with the children during assemblies, and they are reinforced during class time.
TCAT seeks to create and promote a challenging learning environment that inspires children to achieve high standards and become life-long independent learners. We work to set consistently high expectations, build children's confidence and ensure engagement for all. In each of our schools we endeavour to develop creative thinkers, inquisitive questioners and avid problem solvers, with flexible skills, who are successful communicators. All children learn to collaborate effectively at all levels, including working with our international partners, and adapting to the needs of a diverse and ever-changing society. By embracing technology as part of everyday teaching, our schools take a new approach to digital tools, embedding their use within a broad and balanced curriculum. Our schools create and promote a challenging computational learning environment. The children are taught from an early age to program, to develop good logical thinking skills, to solve problems and to collaborate effectively with their peers.
