Inspiring learning for life


At Preston Candover our aims are to:

  • enable every child to meet their potential intellectually, morally, spiritually and physically in a caring Christian environment.
  • develop learners who show mutual respect and make a positive contribution to society.
  • inspire our children to become life-long learners who are equipped to apply their learning in a diverse and rapidly changing world. 

Our core Christian values of Love, Hope and Justice focus us as an inclusive community to be the best version of ourselves.  Our values permeate all areas of school life through learning, religious education, prayer, worship and action. We live our core values, cultivating character in our children through teaching virtues e.g. respect, perseverance, courage, fairness and truthfulness. Opportunities for reflection, questioning, and exploring beliefs are essential in developing each child and these are actively planned for.

Children flourish at school when the relationships between home and school are established on trust and mutual respect. We build strong partnerships between staff, parents and governors to ensure the provision of an outstanding education.
