Values In Action

Home Values In Action

Our ambition at Selkirk High School is ‘to empower every student to achieve their unique and magnificent potential whatever their background, ability or identity’.

Selkirk High School is for everyone. We strive to ensure all our students know how to be safe, well and happy. All students, whatever their identity, background or ability, are individually supported to be who they want to be and encouraged to be ambitious in their learning and personal development.

Our shared values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience and Relationships lie at the heart of all our efforts at Selkirk High School. Every individual in the school community is challenged to put our values into action in all they do.

Students in the SHS Rights Respecting Schools committee have gained recognition from unicef for SHS as a Rights Respecting School

The school has also achieved the LGBT Bronze Award for its work in supporting young people of all identities.
The school is very proud to hold a Green Flag – putting our Values into Action for the Environment too

We are very proud of the academic and wider achievement of our students. We strive to ensure all students are ambitious and successful learners who achieve the widest range of relevant and high quality qualifications and awards of which they are capable.

Students are also supported in the development of our Golden Skills: together with our partners we strive to provide the employability and leadership experiences which will help ensure their success wherever they go.

At Selkirk High School we are determined that every individual leaves the school with the values, qualifications and skills to pursue their dreams with confidence, ambition and success.

We know we can’t do this without the help of our parents and partners. The ethos of Selkirk High School is very much a product of our community, its traditions and its united commitment to our young people. I look forward to working closely with you throughout your association with Selkirk High School.
