Learning • Respect • Belonging
Homewood School & Sixth Form Centre aims to provide a vibrant world class learning experience.
We work as a team, learning in partnership with each other and the wider community.
We provide flexible learning opportunities and have high aspirations for all.
At Homewood School, we actively promote positive, inclusive values. These include democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and acceptance of
those of different faiths and beliefs.
We believe British Values are those values expected of anyone living in a modern Britain, regardless of
their nationality, culture or religious belief and our ethos reflects these values. Our aim is for students
to build positive relationships with those around them and show empathy towards other less fortunate than themselves.
