Vision & Values


At The John Warner School we ignite a lifelong passion for learning, to discover and develop potential, allowing all to flourish in an ever-changing world.


Our aim is to ignite a lifelong passion for learning by:

  • establishing a rich, imaginative and relevant curriculum;
  • appreciating the impact we have as educators to enthuse, engage and enable; and
  • creating the right conditions for learning through effective and consistent approaches to behaviour.


Our aim is for our learners to discover and develop their potential through:

  • a carefully constructed curriculum that exposes them to a full range of subjects and experiences;
  • an exposure to powerful subject knowledge and a development of the skills associated with the dialectic (debate, authentic experiences, experimentation, enquiry, analysis, problem-solving) and the rhetoric (communication skills, performance, show-casing); and
  • learning about how they can manage their own behaviour by regulating, reflecting, relating, repairing and repeating.


Our aim is that all our leaners will flourish in our ever-changing world because they:

  • have had access to a varied and challenging curriculum that leads to successful outcomes in terms of character and capability;
  • are equipped with the skills, knowledge and curiosity that will encourage them to continue exploring; and
  • have developed positive emotional intelligence attributes that will contribute to successful professional and personal relationships during their life.


Our values reflect what we believe in as an educational institution and the behaviours we expect to see demonstrated by all those associated with the school. The values are:
