Vision and Ethos

Two pupils

Our educational vision is based on 3 pillars of learning so that your child will:

  • Believe in themselves and each other;
  • Belong to an inclusive, harmonious community;
  • Become the very best they can be.

Whilst the school will be founded on Christian values underpinning its culture and practices, we will welcome pupils from all faiths and none. As parents ourselves we know that all children thrive and achieve their best in a nurturing environment and that is what we will provide within the beautiful grounds of Chester Cathedral. Our vision is to provide an outstanding primary education with a focus on music to ensure all children regardless of their social, economic or personal circumstances have the opportunity to make the very best educational start, leading to a happy and productive life. There will be a relentless focus on the highest quality learning and teaching.

With the support of the University of Chester, we will develop 21st century transferable skills and knowledge in an inspirational way by blending the innovative with the strongly traditional. We will use music’s potential to raise self-belief amongst young people who may not have previously enjoyed its benefits to the full, and to inspire greater ambition individually and as exemplary citizens in their local, national and global communities. Our school will serve up to 210 boys and girls between ages 4-11. We will provide a one form entry throughout Key Stages 1 and 2 starting with classes of no more than 30 in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 in 2013. All classes will be operating by September 2017.
