Motto

Discover Learn Succeed.

Learning can be exciting and will lead to success; this kind of success is worth striving for with determination and patience. Newton once said, ‘If I have done the public any service, it is due to my patient thought’. Our belief is, being in it for the ‘long game’ reaps rewards and recognises the value of perseverance and resilience. Finally, we respect the positive impact of teamwork and applaud the Cheney message ‘Think for yourself, act for others’. Newton acknowledged the team ethos when he said, ‘If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants’.

Who was Isaac Newton?

Isaac Newton was an inspired and inspirational scientist who discovered gravity in the 17th century. He was a mathematical genius who helped us understand the movement of light and of the planets. He was also an alchemist who was intent on discovering the Philosopher’s Stone, long before Harry Potter arrived! Many say he remains the greatest scientist ever and he is buried in Westminster Abbey, alongside other historical heavyweights and with kings and queens.
