Mission, values and drivers
At Fazakerley, we have many minds but one mission: to get students to and through university or a real alternative so that they thrive in a top rewarding career and have a purposeful and happy life.
Our core values of respect, integrity and determination permeate all that we do. From the moment a student arrives at Dixons Fazakerley Academy, we ask them to live these values:
We never give up. No matter how challenging things get, we keep climbing.
We do the right thing because it is the right thing to do. We do this even when people aren’t watching.
We value each other. We promote the hopes, qualities and achievements of every member of our community.
We also focus on three key drivers: Mastery, which is the drive to get better at things that matter; Autonomy, or the drive to direct our own lives; and Purpose, which is the drive to connect to a cause larger than ourselves (Dan Pink, ‘Drive‘).
We clearly communicate our mission, values and drivers throughout every day so that the whole school community know the purpose of everything that we do. We know why we move around school in the way that we do, we know why we wear our uniform in the way that we do and we know why we look at the speaker in all of our lessons.
Through rigour, simplicity and a relentless focus on success, all students work hard every day to climb the mountain to university or a real alternative.
