The Pembroke Student Charter is a recently developed document that sits alongside our School Aims and guides students in the values important to Pembroke.

Created by the students, for the students, this peer-led document consists of seven written standards by which the students aim to model their principles across the three campuses within our School.

It is a reference point for students, allowing them to understand what it means to be a student at this School, as well as being a member of the broader Pembroke community.

Senior School Student Charter

  1. Be active in creating a welcoming and inclusive community, which recognises diversity and embraces difference in sexuality, religion, gender, ability, appearance, age and race.
  2. Build respectful relationships that are underpinned by a commitment to safety, equality, consent, and decency. We understand that genuine relationships are born from respect, honesty, and integrity. This extends to our peers, teachers, professional services staff and environment.
  3. Encourage a culture that is dedicated to learning, passionate about individual endeavour and appreciates everyone’s unique strengths and abilities.
  4. Embrace connection in all its forms. When we are at Pembroke, we aim to foster and experience a sense of belonging that is built upon our duty of care to one another.
  5. Acknowledge the consequences and take responsibility for our individual and collective decisions. Speaking out on injustice is supported, yet we understand the courage required to challenge our peers.
  6. Be mindful of the social landscape and empower each other to enact meaningful and thoughtful change in the local, national, and global communities both in person and online.
  7. Explore the broad range of opportunities and experiences at Pembroke. We are appreciative, grateful, and motivated by these opportunities and encourage each other to embrace this privilege.
