In line with the school motto 'Amat Victoria Curam', VCP
seeks to develop a genuine love of learning in its
pupils. All aspects of VCP life offer a
stimulating and caring environment. Traditional values are
maintained alongside a modern approach to teaching and
learning. VCP offers a broad and balanced curriculum,
delivering all the requirements of the Jersey Curriculum, whilst
emphasising the cultivation of life skills, to ensure that students
gain a true sense of self. Creative arts, sport and a vast
array of extra-curricular activities contribute to a well-rounded
education. High academic standards form a firm foundation for
continuing success at VCJ. Our open-door policy encourages
parents to become involved in every aspect of school life.
Team-work is high on the agenda.
VCP's Core Values which support successful learning, are
fostered throughout the time a pupil spends at VCP and are as
Aspire - to set your standards high and not be
content with giving less than your best whether it be in terms of
academic work, sport, creative aspects of school life or
Be Respectful - to value others and their
beliefs and values even when they are different from our own, and
treat all with courtesy. To value the traditions and rules of
the school and wider community. To have respect for yourself
and to value your own ideas and opinions.
Be Resourceful - to manage one's own equipment
and time effectively To apply knowledge, gained previously, when
faced with a challenge. To be able to work effectively with
others, to plan ahead and to think strategically. To think
for yourself first before having a go or asking for help, using
others to guide you when necessary.
Be Resilient- to have the tenacity to see a
challenge through and to persevere, even when it is tough. To
be prepared to have a go, learn from mistakes and not give up until
you have achieved what you set out to achieve.
At VCP the aim is to encourage these attributes and create
opportunities for them to be developed. Pupils, with these
core values firmly embedded, will continue to be successful,
adaptable and thoughtful young men throughout their secondary
education and in later life.
