Our vision for Glossopdale School is very simple – ‘to aspire, endeavour and thrive together’.

Our core purpose is to support students of all abilities and backgrounds to develop high aspirations and achieve their potential. We encourage all students to work hard and aim high in order to succeed both academically and personally.

We nurture and build ambition for our students. Whilst your children grow into young people with us, we will open opportunities, broaden horizons and introduce challenges ensuring that by the time they leave us they will be the best that they can be.

Our mission is to develop in each of our students the academic skills, learning habits, values and character traits necessary to thrive and achieve excellence.

At Glossopdale School we place great emphasis on building strong character traits in all of our students. We firmly believe that strength of character is the fundamental cornerstone of academic success. 

We have used the word THRIVE as an acronym to encapsulate our values.

Each of the letters stand for a character trait we want to see our students develop whilst at Glossopdale

THRIVE Rewards

Students who display the traits of our THRIVE values at school, in extra curricular activities and in the wider community, receive recognition for their efforts and achievements in the form of THRIVE points on our Classcharts system.

These rewards are counted and used as a way for us to award exceptional achievement each half term in our celebration assemblies.
