Mission Statement

Royal Russell offers the kind of high quality education that any parent would wish for their child in a stunning parkland location, which complements and enhances every learning experience. From our Junior School through to the Sixth Form, our pupils are rightly proud of their School and their achievements during and after their time with us are a lasting testament to what they have learned.

The School’s specific aims are set out in the Mission Statement:

Royal Russell is an inclusive school which provides a high quality academic education for our girls and boys. We seek to develop the best of our pupils, staff and families within a vibrant community; one which cares and shows mutual respect for all and celebrates the success of each individual as part of the whole.

The School's motto 'non sibi sed omnibus' (Not for oneself but for all) is at the heart of our ethos.

All members of the School community are encouraged to give of their best and to share their talents with, and for, others. The School motto, non sibi sed omnibus, fosters the true meaning of identity and self and challenges us to acknowledge our responsibilities and duties to the communities to which we belong; locally, nationally and internationally.

Our Values:

We nurture pupils’ intellectual, social, physical, artistic, cultural, moral and spiritual development, encouraging an enjoyment of learning, a spirit of enquiry and the pursuit of academic excellence, within a safe and stimulating learning environment.

We offer pupils a broad and balanced curriculum and co-curricular programme, for acquiring knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes in preparation for Higher Education, the world of employment and lifelong learning as citizens of the world. We promote spiritual and moral values through Christian principles, emphasising honesty, integrity, generosity, respect for other people and the environment, and an appreciation of other races, religions and ways of life.

We enhance pupils’ self-awareness and self-confidence, enabling them to develop their leadership skills; to value their own and others’ efforts and achievements and to develop a sense of care and responsibility for the School community and for wider society.
