At Wickersley School and Sports College, we want our students to be able to start their lives post 16 or post 18, equipped with not only the qualifications but also skills, attributes and personal resilience that they will need in order to deal with the challenges of further and higher education and the workplace. As adults, we know that they will sometimes face adversity, frustration and disappointment along the way. We can’t wave a magic wand to make the tough times disappear, but we can work in partnership – school, parents and families – to help our children develop the grit and determination they will need to overcome them.
What we expect of the Wickersley learner
As parents and teachers, it is natural to want to shield our children from failure and upset, and often we set everything up so that cannot happen. However, we often learn best from our mistakes, and the most valuable achievements are those we’ve really worked hard for.
We appreciate your support which is, as ever, essential to our work as a school.
