Ethos & Aims

Our Ethos

Our Ethos
At The Pointer School we are:

  • Christian and community focused. Our pupils grow up with a sense of belonging and respect for the diverse world that we live in.
  • Character driven. Our pupils are resilient and have a strong sense of self-efficacy and integrity. They all achieve more than they first thought possible. Our staff have high expectations instilling a caring attitude, good manners and confidence in all pupils. 
  • Academically rich. We offer a charmingly traditional school curriculum that is also progressive and forward-thinking. We prepare our intellectually-curious pupils for the right secondary school and we are unashamedly ambitious for each and every student.
  • More than just a classroom. We believe in a holistic approach to education and our bespoke co-curricular programme allows all pupils to find their interests outside the classroom, whatever they might be.
  • Internationally proud. Our community of pupils, parents and teachers includes over 50 nationalities from six continents (seven remains an ambition!) reflecting modern-day London and the future world our children will lead.

  • Provide a diverse education that allows pupils to move to the right secondary school
  • Ensure our education is such that top Independent and Grammar Schools are a destination option for all pupils

  • Develop excellent teachers and leaders in education
The Pointer School Child

The Pointer School Child

The school’s ethos and aims are best seen in our three core principles for our pupils. We believe these characteristics to be essential to achieve happiness, contentment and excellence in the wider world. We expect all our pupils to live and embrace The Pointer School Way, and we encourage and develop our pupils to be:

  • Self-confident and generous in spirit, kind to others, aware of others’ feelings and with a deep understanding of the Christian faith;
  • Well educated with a love of and enthusiasm for learning, intellectually curious and ready to engage with their community;
  • Happy, with a good sense of humour.
