College Vision and Ethos

“To make Henry Cort an outstanding college at the heart of the community. Our role is to develop assured, capable, enterprising people, able to maximise their potential, ready to play an active role in society.” 

Achievement * Engagement * Enterprise * Respect


At Henry Cort we aim for outstanding achievement for all students through a supportive and individulaised approach, encouraging perseverence and respect in our pursuit of excellence.

This is our core belief, we want to build aspiration and aspire to be excellent in everything we do, enabling each and every student to achieve the highest possible outcomes regardless of starting points.  We believe that we provide a supportive, individual approach for each student. Last year every student got the curriculum they chose.  We encourage perseverance, knowing not everyone achieves everything the first time round and finally mutual respect underpins everything we do and believe in, we do not tolerate poor behaviour and common courtesy is an expectation.

The Home-College Agreement is a simplified written version of the extensive operations at The Henry Cort Community College.  The routine practices of the college have developed from our underlying beliefs concerning children’s education.  The Henry Cort Community College is a Rights Respecting School and we believe all students have the right to have the best possible education.  This agreement reinforces the importance of the college, its students, parents and carers working together. We hope that you will talk through the agreement with your child, explaining its significance and value before signing it.  Together we will work to create an atmosphere of care, respect and co-operation between children and adults.
