At Homewood School, we actively promote positive, inclusive values. These include democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and acceptance of those of different faiths and beliefs. We believe British Values are those values expected of anyone living in a modern Britain, regardless of their nationality, culture or religious belief and our ethos reflects these values.

Our aim is to for students to build positive relationships with those around them and show empathy towards other less fortunate than themselves.
