Welcome from the Head of School

Dear Parents and carers,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to John Taylor High School. We are extremely proud of our whole school vision, which is ‘One Community, Striving for Personal Excellence’. This is at the heart of John Taylor and highlights the great importance of having a strong, inclusive, diverse community which works effectively together, so that everyone, is able to achieve their personal excellence. The whole school vision is underpinned by the four core values chosen by our school community. 

Respect – to be thoughtful of the feelings, wishes, or rights of others. It also means looking after our environment.

Kindness – to treat everyone the best that you can. No matter who they are or how you feel about them you treat them with fairness and respect.

Integrity – a person's commitment to honesty and a willingness to do what’s right.

Perseverance – is not giving up. It is persistence and tenacity, the effort required to do something and keep doing it until the end, even if it’s hard.
