Churchill Ethos

In Churchill House, we believe like Churchill that “attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” We consider that “courage is what it takes to stand up and speak. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” We realise that “to improve is to change. To be perfect is to change often.” We aspire to unlock our full potential and trust that “Continuous effort-not strength or intelligence is the key to unlocking our potential.”

Most importantly of all, even when times are hard, we find a way to achieve and “Never, never, never give up.” Together we will advance.
