Aims and Ethos

Aims, Vision & Values

Our motto ‘Achieving Excellence Together’ encapsulates our ethos of high expectations and ambition for all our students.


We work hard as a learning community to achieve:

  • Excellent behaviour across the school, with strong relationships at the heart of everything we do.
  • An excellent teacher in every classroom, so that students can achieve their best academically and become lifelong learners.
  • Opportunities for students to develop outside of the classroom and prepare for life beyond The Hamble School.
  • The best possible facilities for students and staff.


Our values underpin our vision and the work we do every day.

We Care

We Aim High

We Learn and Achieve Together…

What does this mean in practice?

Care – means treating others and the environment with kindness and respect, showing consideration, tolerance and good manners.

High Expectations – means recognising the value of education and always striving for the best in terms of work ethic and behaviour.

Learning – means valuing intellectual growth, supporting different learning needs and encouraging responsibility, independence and a ‘can do’ attitude

Achievement – means rewarding and celebrating success in all aspects of school life, including academic, sporting and artistic pursuits.

Working together – means being inclusive and supporting each other both inside and outside of school.

We are proud to be part of Team Hamble.
