While our curriculum is broad and encompassing of a full range of subjects and our examinations results consistently place us among the leading schools in the country, we recognise that to be successful requires our pupils to develop as learners.
Warwick School Learning Values
To facilitate their learning, at whatever stage of their Warwick School career, all pupils are encouraged to adopt the school’s learning values. These values are more than just a set of words. They represent a learning philosophy that if followed, will not only lead to academic success at school but also provide the foundations for success at university and the wider world. The education is provided by employing the highest quality staff, alongside outstanding facilities and resources.
Having the courage to take intellectual risks, attempting solutions to difficult or unfamiliar problems, exploring new concepts in greater depth, challenging accepted viewpoints are the hallmarks of a Warwick pupil.
Equally, important, however is having the perseverance to keep trying. Intellectual risk taking will bring failures and it is a pupil who is prepared to try and keep trying that will ultimately succeed.
Demonstrating the humility to listen and respect the views of their peers and teachers is a pre-requisite not only for the classroom, but also the wider learning process.
All pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning. This includes looking to expand on the content in lessons and more generally recognising that academic success is in their hands.
We value independence of thought and positively encourage intellectual curiosity. Asking questions, challenging
ideas and more generally just wanting to know more are traits we look to develop in every pupil. As curiosity develops, so does creativity. While perhaps more usually seen in artistic disciplines, we encourage creativity across all academic subjects with pupils often writing, designing and producing material that extends well beyond the subject specifications and curriculum boundaries.
