Values and vision
Devizes School’s aims are summarised by its motto: “Raising Aspirations, Building Futures.” The school encourages all its students to aim high in their lives and to build their own futures by working hard and being the best they can be.
Devizes School asks staff and students to demonstrate 100% commitment to the process of learning. It wants every member of the school community to feel they have an equal stake in the success of the learning process. Students' opinions and ideas are sought and appreciated.
The secondary school believes successful lessons are led as much by students as by teachers. Students are therefore viewed as having a responsibility to themselves and to their peers to help make the learning process a productive one.
“The school’s curriculum provides opportunities for students to study subjects which are well suited to their needs, aspirations and talents. Students are well prepared for the next steps in their education, training or employment. The promotion of students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is very strong. Relationships between all members of the school’s community are strong. The school is a calm and supportive place in which to learn. Students’ behaviour around the school is good. Students are polite and courteous to each other and to adults.”
