Message from the Principal

Paul Willerton - Principal

Thank you for your interest in working for The Sutton Academy. 

The Sutton Academy opened in September 2010 and is on a successful improvement journey having recently received an excellent ‘good’ judgement, the first in its history, and securing its best ever results in 2022.

We have a clear vision at the academy for students to achieve in all areas of academy life whilst nurturing their talents and passions. 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. We strive for the best possible levels of achievement for all our students and are committed to providing the highest standards of teaching and learning. In return we have very clear expectations of student behaviour and commitment to learning.

Our students benefit from a modern learning environment with outstanding facilities. This helps to create a vibrant and positive learning community which is friendly, caring and purposeful.

We are aspirational for our students and see it as our duty to ensure they leave the academy as confident and responsible adults who are empowered to make real choices in their lives.

Paul Willerton
