The Hathershaw Way is about adhering to our four respect rules (below) which embody the ethos and values of our school and what we strive to achieve. Indeed, they uphold the fundamental British Values of tolerance, mutual respect, the rule of law and freedom. By teaching our students the difference between right and wrong, and our emphasis on self-discipline, we are creating a culture in which each student can thrive and flourish, no matter what their background. 

The Hathershaw Way is about putting our children centre stage and using the talents of ALL our staff to ensure our students achieve their personal best in both academic and personal development, stretching each child so they achieve their full potential and more. The Hathershaw Way is embodied in our mission statement, “Together we Succeed”, which informs everything we do. It is about our students becoming well-rounded and happy individuals through teamwork, allowing them to go on and have a positive impact on the community in which they live long after they have left us. It is about the pride in our school and the partnership between students, staff, parents and the community to achieve their personal best.
