The JESS Ethos
EDUCATING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD
The notion of ‘Making A Difference’ resonates strongly in everything we do and on every level. Our vision does not make claims of greatness but reflects a humble determination that the actions we take are considered and have a positive impact on a friend, family, movement, or oneself. Our vision broadens to be effective on a global level. We are so proud of the young people that exit our gates at the end of their JESS education. We want them to leave confident and determined to Make A Difference in the World.
- Discovering Brilliance in every Individual
- Building Community through Respect and a Sense of Belonging
- Empowering People to act with Purpose
Our mission focuses on our responsibility for every child, developing their gifts and abilities whilst supporting their every need. The sentiments of respect and belonging at JESS are a focus and priority. Giving our young people the tools and confidence to act in a meaningful way will pull all these strands together to realise our overarching vision. By sending our young people out into the world, well prepared and determined to make a difference, JESS will have done its job well.
