At Portland, our mission is to provide young individuals with the optimal foundation for a successful life. We firmly believe that to unlock their full potential, young people require:

1. Proficiency in literacy and numeracy to navigate a modern society effectively.
2. Social skills that foster positive interactions with others and maximize their opportunities.
3. Life skills that enable well-informed decision-making, leading to positive life outcomes.

All our students have faced challenges related to social, emotional, and behavioural difficulties. Our commitment is to collaborate with them in overcoming these obstacles, ultimately facilitating their success.

Following extensive consultations with pupils, parents, and staff, Portland School is dedicated to upholding and promoting the following core values:

1. Respect
2. Mental Toughness
3. Independence
4. Responsibility
5. Team Approach
6. Belonging
