Teaching & Learning

Our Guiding Principals   


At Buxton School, we believe that every child can be inspired to be their very best through high-quality teaching and learning. We have integrity and positive aspirations, aiming for all children and young people to become successful and kind, active citizens in our ever-changing world. We are passionate about our children’s’ futures, setting the highest of expectations so that in our supportive community, children will develop the skills, confidence and independence necessary to become successful learners. 

Our aim is that every child will be empowered and inspired to learn and to make outstanding progress through high-quality teaching. We are ambitious for our children and the role that they will play in the future of their local and global communities. One of the great strengths of our school is its vibrant diversity, a reflection of the great city in which we live. 

Buxton School is a family at the heart of our community. Together with parents we will enable every child to fulfil their potential. This is within a secure and caring environment where we strive to ensure that every child will develop a sense of pride, enjoyment and ownership of their school. We expect everyone who studies or works at Buxton, including parents and carers, to support our values and work collaboratively to ensure the future success of our children. 

Our vision is to be an exceptional school; inclusive and progressive, where everyone matters and everyone achieves. This is underpinned by our core values:
