Our Mission, Ethos & Values

Our ethos and values draw upon our motto and our two pillars - Inspire to Learn and Inspire to Belong to support us in our mission to transform lives through education.

Our school motto Olim Meminisse Juvabit, meaning 'A joy it will be one day, perhaps, to remember even this' and taken from Virgil's Aeneid, sits between our two pillars and is at the heart of our school.

Our motto has come to encapsulate the beliefs and ideals characteristic of Maidstonians since our founding in 1549 and reminds them, staff, parents and carers of the special part they play in the history of this great school.

The pride that Maidstonians have for their school can be heard regularly in their rendition of our school song Gaudeamus.
