Values, Ethos and Vision

What are our values?


We want our young people to live out the values through their actions- believing in themselves, their community and their education. We know that our students strive to be the best they can and have success and fulfilment. We want our students care for their community and demonstrate that care with kindness and politeness. Ultimately we want all our students to achieve, "life in all it's fullness."

Every day we hope to live out our values in all that we do. We use our RISE time in the morning to re-inforce expectations with our students; what it is to be a student at BSCA we recognise all the good they have achieved in the day before and give thanks for their successes.


What is our ethos?

Our ethos is based on School and Christian values:

Our values, ethos and visions links closed with The Bishop Fraser Trust Church of England Multi Academy Trust. As an academy that is part of this trust, it is important to understand 


What is a Multi Academy Trust?

A multi-academy trust (MAT) is a single organisation established to improve and maintain high educational standards across a number of member schools. Through collaboration and partnership the member schools are able to share expertise and resources. A MAT has responsibility for the overall governance, finance and performance of the member schools.


Who are the initial member schools of the MAT?

The three initial schools of the MAT are

  • St James's C of E High School
  • Canon Slade School
  • Bolton St Catherine's Academy


What is the vision at The Bishop Fraser Trust?

Our vision is: To allow all children to experience 'life in all its fullness', no matter what their starting point.

We will do this by:

  • Offering a high quality, inclusive and distinctive education
  • A caring and nurturing environment based on our Christian values
  • Recognising the unique nature of each child.
