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 lucky enough to work on a year group system where we have non- teaching Heads of year. 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 students in year 11 work one hour extra to the rest of our school so finish at 4:10, this is to allow us to really focus on additional revision for all subjects that students will take exams in. Sessions are led by every member of our teaching team which allows us to have really small and bespoke teaching groups going on each day.
