Our Aims

To mark our 150th anniversary we spent time reflecting on our mission as a school, and on our vision for the coming decades. The statement below captures what we hold most dear for our boys and for our community:

At Homefield we aim to provide a safe and happy environment, with a real depth of specialist teaching, to enable academic success. We invest in an ambitious curriculum for all our boys. This goes beyond English, maths and the sciences. Quality and vitality also underpin the humanities, the arts and sport. This breadth and depth ensures a wider fulfilment of our boys’ individual potential, in ‘head, hand and heart’.

We seek to develop deeper study skills and aptitudes toward learning, such as research and collaboration, in order to inspire independent thinkers who work well with others and are eager for challenge.

We aspire to be a truly cosmopolitan school, with a rich diversity both, reflecting and supporting our place as a charity within the wider community of London. We aim for a generous education of knowledge and skill, but also ethical character so that our boys not only ‘do well’ but ‘do good’. With roots in the 19th Century, our mission embraces the 21st Century where well-being and civic virtue are key to our school’s character and success.
