We aim to help our students develop in a balanced way, enabling them to:
- play a positive part as young citizens in their communities;
- obtain the qualifications they need to continue this aspiration; and
- achieve success at the next stage of their education and their lives.
Academic success is important, but so too are endeavour and achievements in all other areas.
Harnessed to these are the development of spiritual awareness and a sense of responsibility.
The Gordonstoun Schools motto is "Plus est en Vous", or "There is more in you" and we aim to encourage all our pupils to remember this in everything they do at school and at home.
We promote individual effort against a background of solid teamwork. Almost all things can be fun to do and all children can be happy doing them.
