Ofsted Good Rating


We strive for the highest 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 high expectations of student behaviour and their commitment to their learning.

Behaviour For Learning

At The Sutton Academy, the highest possible standards are clearly communicated, consistently demonstrated and upheld by all staff and students at all times. Students appreciate that our high standards are crucial in preparing them for success, both now and in the future. Staff and students take great pride in maintaining the high standards in our learning community, demonstrating the ‘Better Never Stops’ mentality. Underpinning this is the fact that teachers are highly effective at establishing positive relationships in their classrooms, which students value and respond well to.

"A range of opportunities are provided for students to learn about British Values.  The academy promotes students' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development well."
