The Aims of Warwick School

Our vision – Warwick School will be the most inspiring, rounded and caring boys’ school in the UK –‘Altiora Peto’.

Our purpose – to inspire and nurture every pupil to thrive in the world, both now and in the future – the Warwick Way.

The Warwick Way is what makes us distinctive and special – the beliefs and values that define us. Pupils are at the heart of everything we do. We exist to inspire and nurture them spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially. We want to build on their individual strengths and help them grow into well-rounded young men: confident but not arrogant, who can play a positive role in the world.

We seek to foster:

  • Curiosity – to ask questions, challenge ideas and think for oneself
  • Creativity – to use imagination, without limitations
  • Courage – to embrace challenge and always to do what is right
  • Perseverance – to keep trying, regardless of the outcome
  • Responsibility – to create a better world around us
  • Humility – to listen and respect others and to put them first


Statement of Values

We seek ‘higher things’ in all areas of school life:

  • Academic excellence. We aim to enable pupils to achieve their academic potential by developing a spirit of intellectual curiosity, the confidence to persevere in the face of difficulties and a lifelong enjoyment of learning.
  • Outstanding pastoral care. We foster a safe, caring and happy community, based on Christian values of humility, courtesy and good manners, in which the well-being of each individual is paramount, irrespective of their background, and in which pupils grow to be confident, but not arrogant.
  • A co-curricular programme that delivers both excellence and opportunity for all. We offer a very broad range of activities with the objective of striving for excellence whilst also offering the widest participation possible, so that every pupil has the opportunity to learn responsibility for himself and others.
  • A sense of community. We seek to help our pupils embrace the world around them and appreciate that we are part of a greater whole, socially, morally and spiritually, with an obligation to serve as engaged, responsible citizens both within the School and wider Foundation, and within the local and global community.
  • Recruit, retain and develop exceptional staff. We aim to appoint hard-working, talented and inspirational staff who are deeply committed to the School and who, in turn, feel valued and supported to develop as professionals.
  • The development and maintenance of our site and facilities. We look to maintain our current provision at the highest levels and continue to develop first-class facilities to support all areas of school life.
