Traditional Christian Values
- The Medbury Values
The twelve Medbury values underpin the “Medbury Way. The values are integrated into the curriculum and become part of the boys’ every-day school life, from manners, to “doing the right thing”. The values also become part of the fabric of the wider Medbury Family. They give clear direction for all staff, parents and the Trust Board, influencing day-to-day and strategic decisions.
The Medbury Values are:
- The Medbury Family
The Medbury values underpin the “Medbury Family”, which is a very strong element of the school. Our “Family” is supported by Class Representatives from the Parents’ Association, a strong and involved Parents’ Association who bring the “Family” together regularly, and a long-established Old Boys’ Association. The Medbury Values are further reinforced through the school House System and our engagement with the community, with fundraising initiatives for many local and national organisations, including the Red Cross and the City Mission.
- Christian Values at Medbury
Medbury School is not aligned with any religious denomination, but we have had a long standing connection with St Barnabas, the local Anglican Church. The Church is currently under repair in 2013. The services are currently held in The Medbury Centre, every boy is expected to attend two services per term, and the services are designed for the boys. The school’s Divinity Curriculum enables the boys to understand and be introduced to various forms of faith, with the common seed being strong traditional Christian values. The boys are taught the skills of writing prayers and singing a wide variety of traditional hymns. The goal is for every boy to leave Medbury with a good understanding of and empathy for the various and different aspects of society.
