A student leaving JCG at the end of her studies will enjoy life to the full, value her friendships and achieve balance in her life. She will have a thirst for knowledge and already possess a broad understanding of the cultural, historical, geographical and scientific events and ideas which have fashioned her island and her world, and an eagerness to discover more. She will have a good range of hobbies and interests, including the Arts and sport, which she wants to pursue. She will be a rigorous and imaginative thinker.
She will leave us with an excellent record of achievement for an academically-demanding course at university or employment which will lead to a stimulating career. She will have the ambition, motivation and staying power which will equip her to study independently and successfully at either. She will apply for internships, work experience and voluntary work in her holidays.
She will have grown as an individual who is happy, well mannered and able to find fulfilment in her service to others. She will be thoughtful, open-minded and be able to lead. She will be conscious of the advantages she has enjoyed and of the opportunities and obligations such advantages should bring. She will want to have a positive impact on her community and the world.
She will have happy and lasting memories of her time at College and an admiration for those people who have nurtured and shaped her learning.
This aspiration is, I hope, your aspiration. These ideas bring our values of ‘Aspire, Inquire, Excel and Belong’ to life.
