Ethos and Values

At TFS, our ethos underpins everything we do. We are focussed on delivering Success without Selection and a Powerful Education for all our scholars.

Our ambition is to create:

  • An ethos of kindness, trust and high expectations
  • Culturally literate scholars
  • Tolerant, respectful and courteous citizens
  • A welcoming community, where all are able to learn and succeed
  • A community with aspirations, confidence and self-belief

To achieve this we have three core values:


  • We work together to ensure everyone in our community can fulfil their potential
  • Trust is at the heart of everything we do
  • We respect and value everyone


  • We choose to do the right thing
  • We are considerate of others
  • We ensure equality of opportunity for all


  • We work hard
  • We celebrate achievement and learn from our mistakes
  • We prepare our scholars for university, work and family life
