Our School Ethos and Values

Gunness and Burringham recognises the historic foundations and aims to provide an education of the highest quality, which will seek to value and explore the insights of the Christian tradition.

The school respects multi faiths and celebrates a culturally diverse society.  It will promote an ethos committed to diversity in order to encourage our students to become thoughtful, sensitive, tolerant and well-educated citizens.  This ethos will enable the Christian heritage of the school to interact with life today, and ensure that the values of all people are shared and celebrated.
