Vision and Values

Our Purpose: To ensure that all children feel safe, secure and are inspired by learning. 

Our Values


In 1859 Dr. John Betts set up a unique trust to provide free education to local children. A social pioneer; happy children, equality of opportunity, educational excellence and service to others, were of the highest importance to him.


John Betts School is as innovative now as it was then. Voluntary aided and non-denominational with broadly Christian values; kindness, integrity, resilience, perseverance and courage are at the heart of everything we do.


We are committed to providing innovative, creative, high quality education for every child, which inspires a lifelong love of learning and equips them with the wide range of skills and knowledge needed for transfer to secondary school and life beyond.


John Betts is a safe, secure and inspiring environment where our children feel valued and happy, one where we celebrate and promote equality of opportunity and diversity and the importance of serving other people and our community.
