Mrs Emma Wilks Mr Chris Deeks
It is our pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to you and we hope that you will find all the necessary information that you require about our school and our unique approach to education. The High School opened in September 2012 and we have now reached the stage in our development where we have 550 pupils in years 7-11. Our sixth form largely comprises our own students, though we do also benefit from students joining our sixth form from other schools. In total, therefore, we have approximately 660 pupils that benefit from our virtues-led approach to education that nurtures both the minds and hearts of our pupils.
Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace. Last week pupils discussed the importance of Peace.
Welcome back to all our new pupils, families and staff. It is our ambition to provide a 'faith-inspired, virtues-led' experience to prepare our pupils to become the compassionate leaders of tomorrow and, at the same time, achieve academic excellence. We believe in bringing together pupils, parents, teachers and the wider community to build an environment to enable pupils to flourish, as well as recognise and realise their full potential. The 'Nishkam' ethos is to create a 'selfless' mind-set, to go beyond ourselves to serve others. We look forward to you joining us on this special journey.
Award ceremonies will be taking place to mark annual achievements across our schools. Pupils will receive awards for virtues including faith and service. Congratulations to all our pupils this academic year. We wish you all the best and thank you to all pupils, staff and parents for being part of our Nishkam journey.

Pupils consider how they may adapt to change and be optimistic about the future.
Pupils last week learnt the principles of the Peace Charter for Forgiveness and Reconciliation and the importance in the way we live our lives locally and globally. https://www.charterforforgiveness.org/
Pupils this week explore one of the golden threads "Trust In God" and how famous individuals (or situations) where their belief in God (and virtuous living) has influenced them.
