We are proud of our Church of England heritage and welcome students and staff from all faiths and none into our community. Christian beliefs are firmly rooted in our foundations and support all that we do.
Cross – the cross on our shield reminds us to treat others as Jesus did: to ‘love your neighbour as yourself’
Rose – the rose on our shield focuses us on our core belief that all of us have value and, like a rose blooms, we will
work to ensure that everyone flourishes: ‘And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose’ (Isaiah 35:1)
The Bible reminds us of how we can all live and work by our core mantra of Work Hard, Be Nice, No Excuses and we are proud to use this as the foundation upon which we will build our success.
The Bible tells us:
‘Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as if for God and not for men’.
The Bible tells us:
‘Love your neighbour as yourself’
The Bible tells us:
‘You, therefore, have no excuses'
At Slough and Eton we see all our students as God’s children and we wish for them to develop the characteristics exemplified by Christ as successful learners. CHRIST guides the Slough and Eton Learner to ‘work hard’, ‘be nice’ and have ‘no excuses’ and develop a CHRIST-like character:
Communication: Jesus drew large crowds to hear his teachings; he told stories that are relevant today, and spoke sayings that are part of common parlance. He was a skilled communicator.
Honesty: Even when Jesus was put on trial before being crucified he did not lie. He opted to ‘speak the truth in love’.
Responsibility: Jesus noticed and did something about people who had less than others. He fed the 5,000, healed the sick, and was trusted by so many people that they left their everyday normal and chose to follow him.
Initiative: Jesus was creative in the way he led his team of disciples, and in the decisions he took. He led people into living in a radically different way and was prepared to take risks in doing this.
Success: 2,000 years later and the religion that developed out of Jesus’ teachings is followed by 2/3 world’s population. His values and teachings are considered transformative which is remarkable for a man who didn’t travel more than 100 miles from his home town.
Tolerance: In a society where people who were different were treated as outcasts, Jesus triumphed the cause of the downtrodden. He epitomises someone who treats everyone with equality and fairness.
