The willpower to work hard, even when things are tough, is an incredibly important value in school life and the wider world. We believe that pupils should understand that to be tenacious, means to build resilience and determination to succeed in the future.
Tenacity involves participation and commitment! It is about working hard and working smart for a long time. Pupils are mentored about the positive mindset and skills they need to look beyond short-term concerns and to focus on longer-term goals. Tenacity is the ability to withstand challenges and setbacks with perseverance.
We model this daily at Chase Terrace Academy with our continual dedication to go beyond what is convenient and strive to exceed. We are positive and do what it takes to complete our work: we never give up, we know success comes from failure, we learn from our mistakes and we celebrate effort.
