Ethos of the School


Devenish College aims to provide an inclusive child centred learning environment where students mature and develop into confident, successful and responsible citizens ready to play a positive role in a 21st century society.

We achieve this through:

  • respecting all others and displaying Christian values
  • treating each other in a fair and reasonable manner, and being approachable and open
  • adults ensuring that they are positive role models
  • enjoying learning in all its forms throughout our lives
  • encouraging everyone to strive to be the best they can possibly be
  • providing support and challenge in equal measure
  • recognising all successes and achievements on a regular basis
  • constantly evaluating what we do
  • maintaining clear and consistent boundaries
  • developing enriching, dynamic and creative experiences
  • developing strong links between the school, home and the community
