The Gryphon School

At the Gryphon School, we believe all students are entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum. We seek to provide opportunities for all our students across the range of abilities, cultures and genders. Our belief is that all students should be valued equally, irrespective of their differences, but at the same time we appreciate the need for treating them as individuals. We aim to promote and develop a whole-school policy at The Gryphon through which we can promote inclusion and provide the appropriate support to ensure that all students achieve their full potential and prepare for adult life through effective learning.
