Our Values

Our 6 values reflect what we are, how we do things and where we want to be. 

  • Ambition

We want to be the very best we can become for our students - we measures our success by their success.  We value what we do because it matters- we believe that every learner can achieve their potential.

  • Improvement

We are committed to continuously improving everything we do for the benefit of our students.

We actively invite feedback from our customers, regularly review completed tasks to identify opportunities to improve, are receptive to new ideas and learn from our failures as well as our successes.

  • Team work

Our success is based on our staff.  We work collaboratively utilising the different knowledge, skills and experiences we each have; we openly communicate, resolve issues and learn lessons.

  • Responsibility

Our success is built on each member of staff taking personal responsibility for their own actions and work, and committing to doing their best every time.  We avoid micro-managing; giving members of staff the freedom to perform and to hold each other to account for results.

  • Communication

Everyone is informed, listened to and involved; we take collective responsibility for achieving our vision; and expectations are clear.

  • Respect

We believe that trust, respect and civility bring out the best in people.  Members of staff celebrate differences and treat each other and GC students in ways that promote mutual respect.
