News from Head of Secondary, Izabella Słoczyńska

‘Manners Maketh Man’ is an often used English quotation  by William of Wykeham a gentleman who lived from 1324-1404.

When I looked at some interpretations of the meaning, I read:

‘It is about politeness , etiquette and charity’

‘It is to stop people descending in to savagery.’

‘It means that the manners a person uses shows who that person really is.’  

There are many similar interpretations to be found of this quotation, but in essence our manners are an important part of who we are. At school, education is not solely academic, but moral and spiritual too, and developing a sense of identity is very important to all of our students, but particularly throughout Secondary School years.   With this in mind we have been observing the manners of our students. Are they always respectful towards others? Do they think of other students and adults in the places we share when they move around the school, eat, drink, talk, work and play?  Please discuss what is considered to be good manners with your son/daughter, as the most important lessons come from home and your son/daughter will be judged by society on many attributes including manners.

In school we will be focusing on:

  • Respectful listening and speaking
  • Keeping our environment clean and tidy
  • Being polite towards others in actions and words. 

 Our aim is to help all of our students realise that consideration for others is just as important as respecting yourself.
