Vision 2020 Mission Statement


Colmers School will remain a focal point of pride and optimism in the local community which it serves. The momentum of Colmers’ progress will be sustained through the pursuit of a world class educational experience for every student that joins our community of lifelong learners.

In sixty or seventy years, our retired students must establish a link between the strong foundation created at Colmers and the joys and successes they have experienced throughout their life. That job, that friendship, that relationship, that discovery, that eternal contribution to the world they entered, should in some way be attributed or linked to the person that emerged from their education at Colmers. Their memories of other students and of staff should be rich and packed with both nostalgia and affection. In short, they must remember their time at Colmers as amongst the best days of their life – a time when they were encouraged to become their best self and face life’s hurdles and hardships with optimism, self-belief and passion.

The future of Colmers students, and therefore the school, rests on all students, regardless of background, achieving excellence by belonging together and challenging their mind-sets.
