Values & Ethos

We are a popular and oversubscribed school with a very special and warm ethos. We offer a full range of academic and enrichment opportunities to all, and we are very proud of our pupils’ achievements. All students are entered for an extensive range of examinations.

We want our students to be happy and successful, to be good citizens and to enjoy their years with us. Our ethos is founded upon the principles of right and wrong, and dignity and respect for all. All members of our community should be committed to these values and live up to them.

On arriving at West Derby School visitors immediately notice the calm, purposeful learning environment and the excellent relationships which are evident between students and staff. with this foundation, our students’ journey to becoming confident, independent and well-rounded adults has already begun.

It is because we are a confident community that we acknowledge that we can improve further and we will always seek strategies to work even more effectively, with all stakeholders, in this journey of continual improvement.
