School Vision and Values

Transforming Lives Through the Power of Education 

During their time at North Chadderton School, our students acquire the knowledge and skills they need to be successful, whether that is success in their external examinations and assessments, or in becoming citizens who can contribute and participate positively in society.  

Education transforms lives through expanding the mind and developing empathy and critical thinking in our students. This enables them to explore and connect with alternative viewpoints and perspectives, as well as be able to establish their own unique identity and adapt their outlook towards the world around them.  

We want to ensure that all our students are school ready, so that when they leave us, they are work ready and life ready.   


Work Hard, Be Kind, Make A Difference

Work Hard – working hard teaches our students about the importance of discipline, determination and dedication. Instilling a strong work ethic will serve them well in school, in their future careers and their personal endeavours. 


Be Kind – being kind to ourselves and others can have a positive impact on our mental health and happiness. When we practice being kind, we feel more connected with others, and it helps build respectful and meaningful relationships. 


Make A Difference – making a difference is important to individuals and communities because it is through our good actions that we can create the positive change we want to see in the world. We want our students to be able to evaluate where they are already making a difference, and to consider how they could continue their personal and professional growth to make a difference to their life and the lives of others.
