Some example Vision statements from schools in the UK
Read More About Mission Vision
Vision and mission statements/statements of aims are often combined. Some ‘Vision’ statements may actually be mission statements, that is, statements of how rather than of what the school seeks to achieve or to be.
Editor’s Note In some of the examples below the ‘vision’ part of a school’s Vision Statement is clearer than others. We have highlighted what appears to us to be the part that is ‘vision’.
