Reflection – showing pupils how to make good judgements, to review what they know and learn, to evaluate and analyse success and failure with a view to growing potential.
Resolve – enabling pupils to have the courage to take a chance, to face a challenge with confidence.

How can you soar, if you haven’t stumbled?
How can you know the way, if you haven’t explored every turn?
How can you be bold, if you’ve never felt nervous?
How can you know what you want, if you haven’t discovered what you don’t?
How can you enjoy the win, if you don’t know how it feels to lose?
How can you know the answer, if you don’t understand the question?
We champion our children to be ambitious and inquisitive.
Try new things and be unafraid to fail.
Challenge structures and norms.
Uncover what their best is,
Not someone else’s.
Experiment and change their minds.
Balance different passions and ways of learning.
Embrace change and the unknown.
Discover who they are and who they want to be. Because Radnor House Prep will always be a place where curious minds can explore.
