School Ethos

We aim to ensure that every student is the very best that they can be. The best is achieved within a climate of high expectation; as well as academic success, our school also aims to develop character, compassion and service.

Our PRIDE ethos represents what we expect of everyone in our school community.

We are Proud of ourselves and constantly strive to be the best we can be so we can look back on a joyful schooling with wide opportunities which challenged, inspired and excited us.

We are caring and courageous in our Respect of difference and diversity.

We are Involved in school life and contribute positively to society.

We are Determined to try things we cannot do, to persist in the face of difficulty and be resilient in overcoming obstacles.

We aim to be Excellent in all we do.

Our PRIDE ethos is the embodiment of Education With Character and embedded in everything we do here at The John Roan School. 

Pride Passports


Students in Years 7 and 8 all proudly carry a Pride Passport in their blazer pocket. If a student displays PRIDE values in lessons, a teacher can reward them with PRIDE points, and they will receive a PRIDE sticker associated with the value they have demonstrated.

Stickers can also be collected for excellent community behaviour and a gold sticker is awarded for displaying PRIDE values above and beyond expectations - this is a fantastic achievement.

Stickers are collected in students' passports and, at the end of each term, we will hold a surprise celebration to present certificates and badges to those with the most PRIDE points.
