Fundamental British Values.
Fundamental British values are at the heart of everything we do. We stand up for democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect. We also encourage our students to show tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs. You’ll see these values demonstrated in our tutorials and all areas of our curriculum. Make sure you respect them too.
