Together Students Achieve

Values & Ethos 

The academy’s mission statement, “Together Students Achieve” informs everything that we do and characterises the ethos and the spirit that drives our collective endeavours and our vision for improvement. At The Sutton Academy we recognise that everyone; staff, students, parents and carers are individuals but share a strong collective will to succeed. Therefore, at The Sutton Academy we respect the individual needs of everyone and seek to foster a caring and creative environment which emphasises the positive social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of all learners.

In striving for excellence we seek to develop first class learning opportunities for all and that, over time, The Sutton Academy Learning Community becomes recognised as outstanding in everything that it does.

The academy has a strong vision for partnership working with sponsors, the local community and external agencies to create personalised, engaging and motivating educational experiences for its young people.


To provide a working environment where good relationships between staff and students contribute to an effective and enjoyable learning process and student progression.

To provide a variety of personalised opportunities for staff to enhance their professional experience and development within a rewarding and fulfilling career.

To ensure continuity between the primary, secondary and further education stages of learning and to prepare students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life in an increasingly technological society.
