Values for life

The individual is at the heart of our ethos and this close school community is bound together by a strong set of values that lay the foundations for learning and life both behind and beyond the school gates. Our school motto, Light Work Life, reflects the principles that underpin the daily life of the school.

Great emphasis is placed on pastoral care. The core values of kindness, respect and courtesy underpin daily life and visitors to the school often comment on the excellent relationship between staff and pupils. Being a relatively small school with a tight knit community, our staff can get to know each child individually to provide unbeatable care and support.

Gidea Park College teaches children to respect each other irrespective of their origin.
