Mission statement

At Highams Park we all work together to ensure all students and staff have the opportunity to achieve their personal best both educationally and morally. We aim to enable students to have responsibility for taking their place successfully in a diverse and ever changing society. We encourage and promote mutual respect for each other, hard work and personal resilience all set within a stimulating educational environment.

This vision is captured in the school motto:

‘Success through our endeavours’
