We seek to be a community that places learning at the centre of all its activities and a school that offers achievement, success and recognition. We will treat everyone at St Hugh’s fairly, celebrating difference and meeting different needs so that all members of our school community are free to live, learn and enjoy.

At St Hugh’s School we aim to promote equality and diversity and tackle any form of discrimination. We seek to remove any barriers to access, participation, attainment and achievement. We will promote community cohesion at school, local, national and global levels and implement all necessary actions in relation to ethnicity, religion or belief and socio-economic background.
