Values and vision
Our school motto is 'Give and Expect the Best' and we do this by living our values each and every day. Bravery, Excellence, Self-Discipline and teamwork.
Barking Abbey School aims to provide world-class teaching and learning to all its students. Staff strive to offer outstanding pastoral care, and to deliver an inclusive and challenging curriculum while offering regular and robust assessment. The secondary school also has a programme of high-quality enrichment classes.
A clear theme running through the school is the positive behaviour of pupils and their excellent attitudes to their work. Pupils are keen to do well and seize the opportunities given by teachers to work hard. They conduct themselves well around the school and are polite and respectful towards others. These attitudes have a strong impact on pupils' achievements because they enable learning to take place without undue interruption.
