Anthony Gell School is a community where everyone, whatever their role, works hard to create a learning environment which includes a rich and varied curriculum; this curriculum is evident throughout all of the different aspects of the school’s life. It is a curriculum which provides us with opportunities to explore, learn more about the world in which we live, and equips us well for future learning and employment.
In order to do this, we believe it is important that everyone involved develops the skills and knowledge necessary to become self-motivated, independent and confident learners, with the social awareness to make a difference and care about ourselves, others and our environment.
Through the breadth and depth of our curriculum, we continually endeavour to create opportunities that will highlight and enhance the important skills we value, including literacy and numeracy.
We constantly strive to improve our ability to work as a team, by developing our sense of empathy and understanding, as well as knowing when and how to lead.
Encouraged to be creative, and confident to take risks when learning, we are not afraid to make mistakes and aim to be resilient in the face of difficulties. We support one another and celebrate our own successes as much as we celebrate those of others.
We endeavour to be more self-aware and make good decisions with regards to our mental and physical health. We work, as part of a larger community, to develop a careful awareness, understanding and acceptance of others’ beliefs, opinions and individuality.
