Our mission ‘More is in Me’ applies to everyone in our school community. We expect and encourage students, staff and families to push beyond themselves to improve their skills so that our students are given the best learning opportunities in school and at home.

At George Mitchell School we expect our students to develop

  • A thirst for learning and a desire to achieve their best at all times
  • Respect for themselves and others
  • The ability to make safe and informed choices about what they do

We aim to provide an aspirational and excellent academic environment that supports students to make sustained progress from Nursery to Year 11. In our school, learning comes first.

Through their time, we want our children to develop the confidence to take on new challenges and resilience to overcome difficulties. We want them to understand how to take up an effective role in Modern Britain and develop an awareness of wider world issues.

We want our students to leave school as secure and healthy individuals who are self-reliant, assured and motivated to succeed in life. We will ensure they are equipped with the skills necessary to explore the many opportunities available to them in the world today.

We at George Mitchell School are extremely proud of our increasingly well-recognised careers support provision for our pupils.

George Mitchell School is aware of the new statutory careers guidance for schools, published in January 2018, and will be continuing to improve our provision both in line with the new guidance and beyond it. Our Careers Department provides students with the information and support needed to make the right decisions about their future. Our Careers Department is fully aware of the Gatsby Benchmarks and will be working towards meeting them by 2020.
