School Charter

Our Charter sets out our expectations for all students and staff at Oriel High School.  Our drive for exceptional progress and personal development is underpinned by the schools core values of Creativity, Achievement, Respect & Excellence which permeate throughout the school.

“Leaders are committed to ensuring that every pupil gets the best possible school experience. The school’s motto, ‘empowered to achieve, inspired to excel’, drives everything that leaders do. They have thought hard about what they want pupils to learn in each subject, every term, in order to achieve this goal. Leaders also make sure that pupils’ personal development is as important as their academic progress.” – Ofsted, 2019
