Dyke House Sports & Technology College

Attainment and Achievement through Creativity, Collaboration and Character

Ethos

We are clear that there are no excuses for underachievement. We identify barriers that may stand in the way of achievement, work to understand the causes in context, then develop a persistent and uncompromising approach to supporting our students to make progress.

Our ethos is built upon understanding the needs of our students, building relationships with staff, students and parents and establishing a culture of no excuses. We focus on the highest standards in every aspect of college life: learning, behaviour, attitude, punctuality and uniform. Consistency is the key throughout all our work in which we insist upon a commitment to shared values from staff, students and parents. Our staff develop a deep understanding of the needs of all students in their care, create a positive environment for those students to flourish, challenge them to go beyond their aspirations and work in collaboration with parents and carers to ensure future success.
