British Values

 At Greenwood School we feel it is important to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance as they will help the development of our students. The values are taught through a broad curriculum both in and outside the classroom supplemented by extra-curricular activities.


Greenwood School provides all students with the opportunity to participate in a range of experiences that facilitate a practical understanding of democracy.  These include: –

The Rule of Law
