About DRET’s Education Vision

Crafting an unbeatable learning climate through our Warm:Strict philosophy, we hold unapologetically high expectations for and of the students in our care. We have clear boundaries, rules and routines because students deserve to feel safe and calm in school.

We value the acquisition of powerful knowledge as a goal in itself, as an entitlement for all children. We invest significant time and resource into ensuring that students gain a wide, broad knowledge base to enable them to become active members of their community in the future. Alongside a rigorous and challenging academic curriculum, students also experience a broad range of sport, art and musical opportunities ensuring that they have the richest experience a secondary education can give.

Our teachers are subject experts and make use of evidence-based research to ensure they pass on their knowledge to students in the most direct and effective ways, ensuring that it is learnt, remembered and that it supports every child to achieve their fullest potential.

We know that the way we do things is as important as what we do; that is why the DRETWay is the True North of our mission’s compass.
