Greatfields is built on three simple principles:

1) A culture in every classroom in which students are working harder than the teacher, are not afraid to make mistakes and can become independent learners.

2) A culture of positive behaviour with high behavioural expectations for our students and strong relationships between staff and students.

3) High aspirations for all students.
