About Our Academy

Being the best is neither a destination nor a moment in time, but it is a journey towards a consistent pattern of behaviour and attitudes that result in constant progress and achievement.

We have huge ambition and aspiration for every student and our commitment to their success is combined with exceptional support. We strive to develop resilience in our students, and the ability to be tenacious in their quest to ‘Enjoy being the best they can be’ in all aspects of their lives. We draw out their individual talents and celebrate their personal achievements at every opportunity. We enable our students to explore interests beyond the classroom, develop a social conscience and create opportunities to enable students to have a broad understanding of the world.

Our values are deeply rooted in a belief that all students can succeed. To achieve this, learning, rather than teaching, is at the heart of everything we do. Our staff are experts and focus on how students can be challenged and supported to achieve the very best they can academically and to help them develop the transferable skills needed to build successful futures.
