Warwick School’s purpose is to inspire and nurture every pupil to thrive in the world, both now and in the future. To thrive in the world, we need qualities of character that allow us to deal with life’s challenges, whatever they may be.

Therefore, we seek to provide opportunities for our pupils to cultivate these values during their time at Warwick School.

Warwick School provides endless opportunities for its pupils to make these values an integral part of their character. Every lesson, club, activity, fixture, concert, performance, rehearsal, training session, clinic, talk and competition is a chance for our pupils to develop these values.
Aristotle said, ‘we are what we repeatedly do’ and if we embrace the chances to develop and role model these values, they will become a firm part of our character.
The Floreat Programme and the Warwick Values
We consider that our beliefs and values set us apart from many other schools. They define our outlook and mission. We seek to inspire and nurture our pupils on many levels, whether that be morally, spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially.

Thus, the Floreat Programme, with its focus on character education, is intended to enhance our mission.
There is a tremendous synergy between the four virtues found within the Floreat Programme and the six Warwick Values that we seek to foster within our pupils, with many of the values finding a home in more than one virtue:
