Our ethos and values
Our vision is to offer an academic curriculum matched to the needs and aspirations of all our students. We strive to instil in all our students the universal values of goodness, discipline and knowledge.
Our academy is split into four ‘small schools’, Austin, Bronte, Shakespeare and Tolkien. This ensures all our students are known and cared for as individuals and where behaviour is expected to be exemplary at all times. Together we create a safe and supportive environment for all students demonstrating our commitment to equality whilst promoting fundamental British values.
Our academy is one of high expectations which aims to transform students, whatever their starting point, into responsible and academically able young adults. We are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to ensure each of our students has the chance to secure the university place of their choice, apprenticeship or employment.
In order to achieve their ambitious goals, we insist our students work hard and develop a positive mindset to challenge, overcoming obstacles and responding positively to setbacks.
Our longer academy day gives more time for students to master the basics in English, mathematics and science.
