Our Vision and Values

IndexOur vision statement is “committed to excellence”.

This, along with our core mission; seizing opportunity, instilling ambition, realising potential; underpins everything we do and highlights the high expectations we hold within our school community.

We promote three core values across the school of courage, pride and respect.


We developed our vision and values as part of our work with the Sycol education programme. This was a three-year process which we used to help us establish and embed an innovation and improvement cycle at Northolt High School. As part of this programme we first established our clear and challenging vision, mission and set of core values. These form our culture and ethos manifesto and we use these to drive innovation and continuous improvement.



Each year, members of staff take responsibility to be Sycol leaders. Some of our Sycol leaders lead staff in developing new innovations. Others lead on developing community activities and on reviewing old Sycol innovations and systems to check that they are still working smoothly.
