We value originality, authenticity and contribution to our community as a whole. We nurture pupils’ intellectual, social, cultural and moral development, so that they can confidently contribute to their world using their unique skill set.

Headmaster’s welcome
We are a family school, which means we value the things which make each of us distinctively brilliant.

The opportunity to educate other people’s children is a rare privilege, bringing with it a huge responsibility to provide the best all-round education possible as we aim to prepare young people for happiness and success in their adult lives. At Royal Russell we take this responsibility extremely seriously. We care about the individual and pride ourselves in the warmth of a community in which all our pupils feel valued. Our school motto is ‘non sibi sed omnibus’ which translates as ‘not for oneself, but for all’. With our core team of teachers creating meaningful and engaging learning opportunities, we work hard to establish a feeling of family and community at our school.

We live in exciting and fast changing times and this means that providing an outstanding, progressive and well-rounded education is more important than ever. That being said, school should be fun and happy children are more likely to be successful. Our happy, vibrant and ambitious community provides our pupils with an exceptional educational experience; with the pupil right at the heart.

Open, ambitious, courageous and distinctive community

Royal Russell is an open, ambitious, courageous and distinctive community. We feel it is important to share our inclusion activities within our own community and beyond. We recognise that this is a journey and inclusion does not stop with a ‘check list’ of activities. We will continue to question whether actions and initiatives are as inclusive as they can be and we will continue to learn from growth experiences on our journey. ​

In collating our strategic inclusion activities, we have reflected upon our four Strategic Priorities: Learning, People, Community and Place. This is because we feel inclusion is an area which has strategic importance for the School and is a thread which must flow through all activities.

As a school, we have a central role to play in educating our pupils about the importance of inclusion and we want our community to have a clear understanding about what Royal Russell will be doing to shift gear on inclusion and play our part in the wider conversation. We are determined to be part of a future where no pupil is made to feel ‘less than’ because of their ethnicity, gender, ability, religion, sexual orientation, nationality or for any other reason.
