Vision and values

We are proud to define our mission statement and school motto as ‘Educate for Life’.

Our mission statement is a genuine, sincere statement of belief.

Educating for life is what Cowes Enterprise College is about: developing a love of learning and preparing students for life itself and all it presents to us. Our aim is for students to fulfil their limitless potential – through perseverance and effort. We don’t select our students, but we do select our staff. Each highly trained teacher is here to support, guide and inspire our students so that whatever their starting point when they arrive, they will leave with the world at their feet – equipped and ready to continue their learning through apprenticeships, at university and throughout their careers. We aim to provide the best opportunities – academic, cultural and sporting – and a sense of moral and social responsibility so that each child realises that humanity is their business and the common good their aim.

We are a values-led organisation, and it is our aim that we continually challenge ourselves to adhere to the spirit of the Ormiston Academies Trust values.

We are pleased to share the results of our May 2022 parent and carer survey on communication, which has been both informative and encouraging to read.
