Culture and Values
Waingels is a very successful 11 to 18 Comprehensive school serving its local community. Our successes and achievements can be attributed to our commitment to establish and grow a Better Never Stops culture, providing a safe, inclusive and rich learning environment where students feel safe and valued, founded on respectful relationships for all.
Learning at Waingels takes place in a climate of mutual RESPECT where diversity and difference are celebrated. Students strive for excellence in everything that they do and take PRIDE in their achievements, effort and conduct. We challenge our students to be independent, RESILIENT and responsible learners; to embrace challenge, to learn from disappointment and failure, and to accept the challenge that getting better never stops.
We are proud of our students’ progress and effort and set high standards and expectations. We value kindness and expect all members of our community to be KIND, courteous and considerate. We all belong to a community and work together as a team in a spirit of cooperation, collaboration and support.
Our values underpin our Waingels Ready expectations that we have for everyone within the Waingels community. These expectations form the basis of everything we do, and everything we believe in as a school and as a community.
