Jordanhill School’s vision, values and aims were refreshed in 2022. This involved a whole school working group consulting with focus groups of pupils, parents and staff. Finally, the working group presented a draft vision, values and aims to the entire school community and sought further feedback from everyone.
Our refresh stays true to the original vision of the school. That is, we are first and foremost an organisation that seeks to empower pupils through learning. At the same time, we know that we are fortunate to help develop pupils as they grow and develop their own sense of identity and place in the world.
Ad Summa Nitor – Strive for the highest
To inspire pupils to become the best version of themselves and make a positive impact on the world.
Gratitude: Notice and appreciate other people, opportunities and our environment.
Integrity: Be reliable, trustworthy, honest and fair. Be accountable for your own actions.
Respect: For yourself and others. Treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself.
Kindness: Show compassion. Use your words and actions to help others.
Perseverance: Try your best when faced with challenges and know when to seek help.
