Ethos, Values & Qualities
Knowledge is at the heart of everything we do at Pimlico Academy, and we have the very highest expectations of our students and what they can achieve.
Our school motto is Libertas per cultum (Freedom through education). We strive to instil in our students:
- Freedom to choose, to be knowledgeable enough to make good choices in life.
- Freedom to think well – we think with words, therefore depth and breadth of knowledge are vital tools in life.
- Freedom from ignorance and prejudice through knowledge and conceptual understanding of the world.
- Freedom to lead a purposeful and fulfilling life.
We believe in the joy of knowledge, and in fostering in our students an insatiable curiosity in life. We teach our students the best that has been thought and said, giving them access to high-quality, classic texts, and lessons from subject experts. We strive to give our students a rigorously academic education that puts them on a level playing field with their independently-educated peers. We believe in pitching lessons high so that our most able students are never bored, whilst supporting our less able students to make steady progress.
