Caring, Creative & Fun.

Our vision.

We want to transform the lives of our pupils and their communities by helping them achieve their utmost, celebrate their talents and become the best that they can be.


Focus on the whole person.

We focus on developing the whole person by not only concentrating on high academic expectations but also focusing on our pupil’s key life skills and personal and social development.


Achieving potential.

We aim to build a life long love of learning in our pupils and a set of moral values that will enable them to make a positive contribution to the community and a rapidly changing society.


We Are A Diverse Community.

We're enhanced by the rich cultural heritage of our school community. With over fourteen different nationalities and eighteen different home languages, learning together and promoting community is a key element of life at Atherton.
