Welcome by Mr Nick Hart, Headteacher
Our aim at Courthouse is for every child to flourish. We create the conditions for staff flourishing, for family flourishing and for community flourishing so that the children of Courthouse are well rounded with individual areas of expertise and choices open to them for the next phase of their education.
We value the pursuit of knowledge, doing the right thing and leadership and team work.
Our vision and values translate into a knowledge rich curriculum, informed by research and designed with the intent of closing the gap between the advantaged and the disadvantaged. This curriculum sets out the knowledge and understanding that children will acquire in their time at Courthouse and is a necessary precursor to critical thinking, analysis and creativity.
Children flourish when they experience an inspiring, knowledge rich curriculum but also through developing a broad range of character virtues.
Intelligence plus character. That is the goal of true education.
Dr Martin Luther King Jr
We systematically teach children character virtues and give them opportunities to apply those virtues throughout the curriculum. These underpin our expectations of how children behave and the habits that they develop.
These are exciting times for the Courthouse community.
