The Glory American Schools Way
At Glory American Schools there is a unique combination of academic challenge, enrichment opportunities and pastoral support to target excellence and create a values-based community of teachers, children and parents. This rich combination, we call “The Glory Way”, the solid rock of our strong values-driven education.
Learning in Context
We strive for academic excellence in a well-disciplined, friendly and supportive community which encourages all learners to succeed. We believe that if students feel happy and secure they will flourish and grow as individuals.
In the drive for this excellence, we are determined on our commitment to consider each child’s curiosity, using real life examples in our teaching and interactions, to ensure that all make exceptional progress. Through the eyes of the child, the world comes alive through this enquiry - based learning approach. Children are often taught outside of their classrooms through hands-on activities around the school and in the wider community and overall, learning in our school transcends individual subjects. We are confident that our passion for and commitment to learning instils the highest aspirations for all in our school-community.
We encourage our children to think and to ask, equipping them with the skills that they will need to enjoy a successful future. We also ensure that they have a solid foundation of traditional school skills; spelling, grammar and times tables are very much part of our school life.
Enrichment is an Entitlement at Glory American Schools.
The learning experience does not begin and end in the traditional setting of the classroom. We thrive to ensure that the Glory Way is as varied, diverse and interesting as possible, introducing students to many different facets of life.
We encourage students to build both on current talents and work on developing new ones by choosing a balanced range of activities from those on offer. We t encourage students to develop a set of skills and values which, when combined with their academic and enrichment skills, will equip them for life.
It is essential that we form a strong school – home partnership between our school, each child and their parents. It is your rights that we share with you our vision and our targets and expectations for your child for the year ahead, but we will also seek to understand your aspirations for your child so that we develop these personal goals and targets together.
Our vision reaches out across every aspect of school life to deliver an experience that is more than an education.
Working alongside parents, we wish to promote a culture and environment underpinned by traditional values. These are the values of compassion, empathy, kindness and honesty but to name a few. We take pride in reinforcing these traditional values in our day-to-day work with children as ultimately, our greatest aspiration, is to help create confident and successful adults who are fundamentally good people. With the support of our families, our children and our staff, we believe that we can contribute to a global target for happiness and kindness that, clichés aside, do indeed make the world a better place for all.
