Values and vision
Our vision is to practically educate our young people to be ready for life in the creative media
sector, linking all education through our specialism in broadcast and digital media. Our school culture is driven by four key values that kickstart us for a career in the creative media industry: Thing BIG, Own It, Keep it Simple and Better Together. Our Global values are defined by four meaningful statements. They’re more than just words, they define what we do and how we do it, and they’re the values we expect to see in every single Globaller. By doing this, we aim to create inquisitive, confident and reflective students who can harness their creativity to progress their own well- being and that of others.
