Our Mission

To empower our young people to be compassionate, self-respecting, independent thinkers with the academic, social and character strengths that allow them to seize the opportunities to thrive in modern society. We strive for them to become drivers of their own education and have self-belief in their ability to follow their individual pathway once we have equipped them for their future.

Our Philosophy

At The Suthers School, we firmly believe that great education transforms lives. We know that every student can exceed their own expectations and we know that the way we do things matters. Our motto, ‘work hard, be kind’ underpins everything we do, reflects our unwavering commitment to excellence and our absolute conviction that great education is about striking a balance between academic preparation and character development. We continue to develop partnerships with local businesses and organisations to provide students with the knowledge and skills they require for the world of work.

Our Approach

We know that young people need both a strong academic foundation and well-developed character strengths to succeed in education and the world beyond.

Our goal is to help all of our students develop five vital character strengths and to equip them with the skills and social intelligence to have a positive impact on the world around them.
