Jesus said:’ If anyone forces you to go one mile, go also the second mile.’ Matthew 4.41

Going the extra mile has become a common turn of phrase. Very little that is worthwhile is achieved without perseverance. We believe that developing and acknowledging the value of perseverance builds resilience, and a good work ethic, encourages pupils to keep trying and achieve their goals and potential. Perseverance is also a value that asks every member of the school community to give that little bit extra for the good and well being of others and never give up.
