Values and vision

The school motto “Think big. Chase Dreams. Succeed together” was the result of the school council, made up of students, underpinning the core aims, aspirations and values of Shuttleworth College as they see it. 

They also established the following values to sum up what the school wishes for all its pupils: Achievement, Resilience, Persistence, Community and Pride.

The school council agreed that Shuttleworth College believes in its students and that they should set themselves high expectations and the school will help them achieve these. They are also encouraged to overcome challenges together, to give their best at all times and to never stop aiming high, that more can be achieved when there is a united community and to be well-disciplined and respectful to all in the school community.


“Under the effective guidance of the headteacher, leaders have taken action to improve the school quickly. Pupils’ behaviour has improved and the number of exclusions has reduced. Pupils’ attendance has improved significantly and is getting close to the national average. Pupils’ attainment in a range of subjects is increasing and their progress is accelerating. Pupils’ outcomes are good in music, technology, science, art and design, and English. Pupils feel safe. They have a good understanding of precautions to take in a range of potentially dangerous situations, such as when using the internet or if faced with extremism.”
