Ethos and Values
Wapping High School promotes an inclusive ethos, in which diversity of need and ability is acknowledged and nurtured. Every aspect of school life is guided by a strong ethical code, encouraging social awareness to help students understand and meet with confidence the challenges of a diverse and changing society and the world of work. Through building positive attitudes for learning and a strong sense of personal responsibility, our students develop as flexible, resourceful and independent learners, ready for successful lives.
Wapping High School is deliberately small and has a strong sense of school community. Students from all years are organised into vertical ‘houses’ to encourage interaction across the school. Teachers know all their students individually. Families form part of the school community and are fully involved with their children’s education. Parents, students and school work closely together to ensure that every student is expected to achieve highly and does so.
Wapping High School’s ethos and values ensure that children are safe, healthy, positively contribute to their whole community, and achieve economic and academic well-being in adult life. Importantly, all students must enjoy attending school and be deeply engaged in their learning.
