Act Responsibly and Respectfully
In line with the Gospel values central to the Christian Faith and our calling to "love one
another" (John 15v17), we believe that everyone in our school should behave in a responsible and
respectful manner with each other, with the school and as part of the wider community.
We model these Christian values to students in the way the school is run by being a responsible employer
and consumer as well as being clear about how we support our local and global community.
Students participate in various community programmes and charity work to achieve these goals.
Support all students to achieve their greatest academic potential
Becket Keys is committed to the highest possible academic standards through the delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum. We value and support the achievements and
aspirations of every student, whatever their starting point, ability and potential. This is key to our
ambition to "bear fruit" (John 15v16)
Importantly, we strive to see all our students excel in the core curriculum and Ebacc subjects. To this
end we have identified that for students to excel in a modern foreign language they need to have 4 lessons
per week and 4 hours of homework right from the start of Year 7. This intensive approach is seeing great
success in students mastering the two languages that we teach: Mandarin and Spanish.
Aim high in life and learning
We know how important it is for our students to thrive in all kinds of ways beyond academic achievement
and to "live life in all its fullness" (John 10v10).
Our school focuses on more than just exam results, encouraging self-esteem and respect for others,
independence and responsibility, creative thinking and innovation, problem-solving and a passionate
interest in the world.
These things are demonstrated through our rich extra curricular offer and through things like our annual
Festival of the Arts which links to our Patronal Festival each summer.
