Principal's Welcome

We are resolute in our belief that schools make a difference. Lives and the communities that they serve are transformed by them. Every child deserves the right to a world class education and it is our core purpose to raise aspirations and improve outcomes for all.

The academy ethos is built around the highest expectations of all and we see it as our duty to ensure that students have the best life chances possible; leaving the academy well prepared to take their place in the world as confident and responsible adults.

The academy works closely alongside our local primary schools to make sure that we build on the excellent progress students have already made. From the moment students join us, we build on their previous achievements providing challenging lessons and a focus on academic rigour. We compliment this with excellent pastoral care, guidance and support. The staff at the academy genuinely care about the students and the community that we serve. There is an obvious importance placed on academic achievement at the academy, but education goes beyond this.

The academy ensures that students have access to broad and enriching educational opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom. We believe that these additional experiences are imperative to developing confident, resilient and well-rounded young people.

I am incredibly proud of the success of the academy in recent years and would welcome members of the community to visit the excellent facilities that our students have access to. This in turn facilitates a vibrant and positive environment where all students are engaged and enabled to reach their potential.

If you would like to visit please simply contact the academy and we will ensure that arrangements are made for either myself, or one of my senior staff, to welcome you and answer any questions that you may have. We cordially invite you to experience for yourself the calm and purposeful atmosphere where students work hard and are cared for. To arrange a tour of the academy please email
