Building upon the strong principles underpinning successful Charter schools in the USA, our school is small in size, ensuring each student is well known to each other and the wider school community. The ‘smallness’ of One In A Million Free School is a strength.
We wish to establish outstanding schools that offer a unique learning experience that is themed across sport, the arts and enterprise and framed around a connected and creative approach to learning. We believe children must be equipped for learning with enquiring minds, significant levels of independence, higher order thinking strategies and intrinsic motivation. Students in our schools will problem-solve, collaborate, negotiate and constantly seek new avenues of learning and challenge. They will be taught strategic higher order thinking skills and will emerge as critical, creative thinkers who have much to offer their employer and community.
We believe our unique learning offer will enhance the life chances of all our students, ensuring they can utilise their skills and talents to better themselves and their communities. When students leave a One In A Million School, they will be active participants in their community, acting as role models and using their talents and skills to engage others in positive community activities and programmes. Our students will be confident and have a level of self-belief and self-discipline that enables them to participate in professional and leisure based activities through work and/or volunteering. Our students will be proud of the communities in which they learn and live.
