EDUCATION MANIFESTO OF THE ESPRIT SCHOOLS

The purpose of this Education Manifesto is to provide insight into the Esprit School members’ collective outlook and our shared goals, expressed in what we feel are six unique cornerstones:

❉ excellent education ❉ internationalisation ❉ coordinating school and home environments ❉ professional roles of employer and employee ❉ educational leadership ❉ accountability and integrity

Based on these cornerstones, we, the Esprit Governing Board, and the heads of the schools with ultimate responsibility, aim to provide inspiration to our schools. For this, our cornerstones must be translated into day to day education in close association with our students. We believe it is important to allow room for the development of individual qualities and the individual

development of students and employees. Consequently, we aim to offer education at Esprit Schools that enables students to use the talents they have to achieve the best possible educational results. This Education Manifesto points the way, and is intended as the basis for the policy agenda of the various Esprit schools. In the context of “good management” and the quality framework, School Heads render accounts of the results of their policy to the Esprit Governing Board. The Esprit Governing Board in turn renders accounts to the Esprit Supervisory Board and government authorities. The Esprit Governing Board regards this Education Manifesto as a ‘dynamic’ document. This means that we shall not attempt to ‘freeze’ reality, but on the basis of annual evaluations, we shall adapt the Education Manifesto to any changed circumstances.
