Welcome to Guru Nanak Sikh Voluntary Aided Secondary School
The school is hard-working, orderly, friendly and takes a pride in its achievements. All students wear uniform and are encouraged to show courtesy and respect for others - themes that are central to the school ethos. Many visitors comment warmly about the friendliness of the school and the good relationships among students. Another comment regularly made to us concerns the purposeful nature of the work taking place in the classrooms, the laboratories, the workshops and on the playing fields.
Throughout the school there is an emphasis on the development of personal qualities, on the widening of students' horizons, and on their preparation for a purposeful and caring role in society. The school ensures that students learn their mother tongue and
are aware of the principles of Sikhism. More importantly they are encouraged to act within these principles which include:
- doing the Nitnem daily
- showing respect for adults
- showing respect for other religions
- caring for the elderly and the underprivileged
- showing humility
The school is always receptive to new ideas and is constantly exploring ways of raising the existing high level of achievement. However, we do not respond to novelty for its own sake and believe in looking at new proposals in the light of their practicality and relevance to our unique role as a Sikh academy. This prospectus aims to give some insight into the organisation of the school. However, there is no substitute for a visit to the school itself and parents are invited to visit us on Open Evenings, or at any other time by arrangement.
