Our Ethos Values

Reach for the Stars!

We follow the ethos values of ASCENT. ASCENT stands for Aspire, Success, Community, Excellence, Nurture and Trust. These values follow us all through our time at Hill View as they are embedded throughout the curriculum to support the children as they ‘Reach For The Stars’. The ethos values determine how we behave and respond to one another, what we expect and guide us on a secure pathway of happiness, achievement and fulfillment.


We ASPIRE to challenge ourselves to become who or what we want to be. To recognise the opportunities that will enable us to fulfil our talents, hopes and dreams.

To believe that anything is possible.


We try our best in all that we do and take pride in our achievements and those of others. We understand that we need to persevere in order to achieve our individual SUCCESSES, even when there are obstacles to challenge us.

We all succeed.


We belong to a number of different communities at Hill View and beyond. We learn from each other by sharing common values and respecting differences. In order for our COMMUNITY to work well we all have a part to play and a responsibility to each other.

We welcome everyone.


We want to achieve the highest standards possible in how we behave, learn and present ourselves. We realise that in order to EXCEL we have to make a personal commitment.

We strive to be the best we can be.


We care, support and NURTURE each other as unique individuals; in a safe and secure environment. We value everyone for who they are recognising the different beliefs and needs. We work together to help everyone realise their talents and potential.

We help each other grow.


We strive to build TRUST in our relationships and encourage openness, respect and loyalty. We will act responsibly, fairly and with integrity, knowing that we can truly depend on one another.

We trust each other.
