At Atherton High School, our core values are:

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Ambition

Our values promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of our students. As a school community, we actively promote the fundamental British values of:

  1. Democracy
  2. The rule of law
  3. Individual liberty
  4. Mutual respect
  5. Respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

These values reflect life in modern Britain and we teach all students that we all have a responsibility to embrace and uphold them. At Atherton High School, we create an environment of respect, openness and inclusion.

“From seeing the head teacher playing football with the children on the yard, to staff sitting with pupils at lunchtime, everyone works together and there’s a strong feeling of belonging to part of something bigger than just a school”
