Gresham’s Mission Statement

Prep school > Mission Statement

Gresham’s aims to provide a caring, challenging and enlightened education which celebrates British values in a Christian setting.  We will always strive to achieve the highest standards of attainment informed by an ethos that values the whole person, including their spiritual and emotional well-being.  At Gresham’s every pupil is encouraged to make the very most of their talents – academic, creative and sporting.  We will provide breadth of opportunity and encourage all Greshamians to develop a selflessness which will allow them to contribute and lead as valued members of society.  We want pupils to enjoy their time at Gresham’s, to understand the rewards of service and to develop the resilience and confidence which will allow them the freedom to flourish beyond Gresham’s and into their adult life.
