Aims & Ethos

At Warwick Road School, our vision is to become an outstanding school with our mission to exceed expectations; hence our motto of: 'Per aspera ad astra'  'Through overcoming difficulties, to the stars'


We aim to work collaboratively with the school community to provide high quality education that enables our children not only to acquire the key skills fur success, but also to develop the social, cultural, moral and spiritual aspects of their lives too.
