mission statement
Mission Statement
  • Individually, our family members will be responsible for the groups within it by showing leadership, initiative, sensitivity, enthusiasm and control. Staff and students alike will have exceptionally high expectations of their own and others’ behaviour and conduct. In response to staff’s nurture and respect for all students, students will show unswerving obedience to all staff.
  • A) to engage students and staff in professional theatre practice that will inspire and motivate them
  • B) to provide excellent teaching and workshops which students and staff will apply back in the UK in curricular and extra-curricular work
  • C) to provide a challenging and enriching introduction to aspects of Spanish culture
  • D) to create a whole group sense of ‘family’; members are aware of their responsibilities and dependency on each other
  • E) To provide the best accommodation, food, transport and resources we can afford
F) to provide students with opportunities to demonstrate leadership
  • G) to provide a safe, healthy and emotionally secure trip
  • H) to create a staff-team which is flexible, open, responsive, and sensitive to each person’s needs
  • I) to ensure the trip is run in accordance with the Christian values and ethos of Harris School
  • SMT: ‘The extent to which both confidence and care developed amongst the students was outstanding.’
  • SMT: ‘It was incredible to see such leadership and nurturing amongst the students.’
  • SMT: ‘The planning of the trip was faultless and the high expectations and mutual responsibility were made clear from the onset.’
  • SMT: ‘It was a great mixture of focused tutoring but also a rich cultural experience of Spanish language, lifestyle, art, dance and food which I’m sure will stay with us a lifetime.’
  • Staff: ‘The dedication to raising achievements and expectations of the students by Mr. Browning and his team would be hard to surpass.’
