At POWIIS we want our all our students to develop the personal and social skills to lead active, effective and compassionate lives when they leave us. Much of their personality is formed by the time they arrive at senior school; we take what they bring and build on it. We offer them a supportive and flexible community, where we aim to make them feel engaged and connected, where we celebrate their successes, support their failures, forgive their weaknesses and nurture their strengths. The ethos of the school is based on building confidence, whilst teaching humility, acceptance of all whilst encouraging individuality, and care for others whilst developing individual focus and determination. Our aim is for POWIIS to model the best aspects of community, in which all can grow.
