At Hermitage, we recognise that all our children arrive with different early life experiences, and therefore, our safe and inclusive environment provides them with the best starting point for developing a love of life-long learning. Our vision is to ensure that all children are cultivated into well-rounded individuals through our outstanding educational offer. Our priority is for our children to leave us equipped and ready for the next stage of their educational journey.
Our ethos is achieved through the trust's values of aspiration, community, and equity.
Our SMILE Programme
At Hermitage, we realise that well-rounded individuals need more than just an excellent academic education in order to succeed and prosper in tomorrow's world and so, we have developed our bespoke SMILEprogramme for all our children.
Our staff are regularly trained in supporting positive mental and emotional health and value the importance of forming strong, effective relationships with our children.
Our SMILE programme penetrates every part of the school day to ensure our children are in the right frame of mind to enjoy and succeed in every aspect of school and beyond.
