Values and Ethos


Our Values

At Grow, we understand that each of our students has individual wants and needs. We believe that learning can only be fostered from a feeling of mutual respect and compassion, and we maintain those values in everything we do. Our unique approach provides students with the proper support system that will help lead them to a successful path.

The 'ROOTS' of our Ethos are
       what ground us
                  and help us to 



Meaningful connection is what Grow is founded on. We understand that building trusting relationships is the key to engaging our young people and a culture of mutual respect. All professionals at Grow ensure they spend time getting to know each individual student in order to provide a holistic approach to their learning.


We aim to provide young people with a range of opportunities to develop their interests, vocations and passions. We make links with businesses, employers and other educational providers to ensure students have the opportunities to experience a range of real-world experiences and settings.



Students are encouraged to take ownership of their aims, actions, and achievements. They are actively involved in planning their learning based on their interests, motivations and strengths in a way that makes the learning meaningful.

We also encourage students to take ownership of the school itself, contributing their input into the décor and items on display.


Students spend more time with teachers, professionals, experts and inspirational role models. We place fewer time pressures on students in lessons in order to reduce anxiety and promote a calmer learning environment. Teachers provide students with enough time to fully experience, absorb and respond to the content of the lesson.



Students have plenty of physical space due to very small class sizes, large rooms, fewer people and plenty of surrounding countryside. We aim to provide a versatile school environment that allows young people to be active, to be calm, to learn and to socialise.

Our quirky and thoughtfully designed learning space aims to engage, inspire, excite and promote a sense of pride in our surroundings.
