To Know, To Care, To Live

Discipline, Ethos and Values

Our school motto of “To Know, To Care, To Live” provides the basis for our School Behaviour Charter developed by the School Council.

The school endeavours to establish good relationships through tension free but firm discipline. The highest standards of behaviour are expected and realised through the implementation of the School’s Code of Conduct Policy and our Behaviour Charter.

This relies upon mutual respect between all those involved in the school community, upon trust and the development of a sense of personal responsibility that all individuals share for the safety and well being of all.

Pride in belonging to Altrincham College is a key factor in the school’s success. All pupils and parents are expected to support and adhere to our Code of Conduct Policy by signing the Home-School Agreement.

 "The headteacher is ambitious for all of his pupils and has created an ethos in which they are encouraged to reach their potential"(Ofsted 2017)


The important values of respect, freedom and tolerance, within a law abiding and democratic community are consistently and pro-actively promoted throughout the Academy. 

Visitors to the school regularly comment on the very good atmosphere that pervades and the friendly, courteous nature of the pupils.

The School Council

The School Council; made up of elected pupils from all years, ensures students have an active voice in driving the school to greater success and in developing our learning environment.


Our praise and Rewards system including letters and postcards home, merit stickers, attendance prizes etc. encourage children to always attend punctually, behave responsibly, bring the correct equipment and work to the very best of their ability.
