Values and vision

Bassett House School’s motto is “Where every child learns to fly”.  The school aims to foster a welcoming, happy atmosphere befitting of its setting – an old family home. The headmistress or a senior staff member greets each child by name every morning.

Teachers have their lunch with the children. A wide-ranging programme of extra-curricular activities is designed to allow pupils and staff to interact in a more informal atmosphere. The school says it is “a place where every child feels valued and gains the confidence to fly”.
