Our Vision & Values

The Shrewsbury Academy wholeheartedly subscribes to a new type of ethos.

Our motto is ‘Achieving excellence together’. It means so much more to us than a traditional school motto. We mean what we say and what is more, we put it into everyday practice.

We are a co-operative school both in structure and spirit, so a set of key principles guides everything that we do.

These are drawn from the internationally recognised values and principles of the co-operative movement, and it is this shared philosophy that makes our school special.

We believe in:

  • Democracy and shared British values
  • Self-reliance
  • Hard work
  • High expectations
  • Equality
  • Respect

Our students will become the citizens of the future. That is why these ethical values are the foundation of life at the Shrewsbury Academy:

  • Openness
  • Honesty
  • Social responsibility
  • Caring for others

We believe in our CARE values and we all work hard every day to achieve them:

  • Co-operation
  • Aspiration
  • Resilience
  • Excellence
