Vision for our School

We were originally founded in 1865 by the Reverend Frederick Boyd for the good of the community of Wouldham. We continue to advance the nature of this foundation by preparing our children for a successful future – equipped with the skills and values needed to be competent citizens of the 21st Century.

Being confident, resilient, articulate, knowledgeable, caring, healthy, adaptable and responsible means you are 'well-rounded' and able to make a good contribution to society. But why should we bother?

God's call through Jesus Christ is to accept all have fallen short and demonstrate selfish behaviours that need to be changed. Following the example of Jesus we should 'Love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and mind and love our neighbours as we love ourselves.' (Matthew 22)

The bible is full of examples, stories and messages on this theme offering guidance and example on how to live our lives.

Loving God as commanded and loving each other leads us to a life of fulfillment. Do we need any more than this? Why not just live out this message apart from school?


Why do we need to be here?

Wouldham All Saints School is part of a community operating within a complex, established society that needs to sustain itself and have understanding of 'self' and history to avoid the growth of ignorance.

John 10 sees Jesus describe himself as a shepherd – a leader and guardian of a group of sheep. He watches over them and allows them to grow into their ultimate purpose (in sheep terms that's fleece and meat!). He goes on to say '…through me ...all can have life and have it to the full!'

We follow this vision and strive to succeed in all achieving it for themselves but also for all others around them as well. The life to the full must be shared and not at others' expense!


To achieve our vision we will 'Fly HIGH' and 'Make our best our Standard.' This is our school response to God's calling and as it is God's work we expect to witness the Holy Spirit working through us and producing fruit as explained in Galatians 5. The Fruits of the Spirit are our core school values.


Our vision is worked out practically – a vision of words is more than useless and without value – to realise our vision successfully we work hard through worship, prayer and biblical meditation. All combining to drive our success as a thoroughly modern church school in pursuit of excellence.
