Our ethos and values
The Academy ethos is based on RESPECT; of self, of others, of learning and progress and of the environment, both within the Academy and beyond. We believe in high aspirations and high expectations.
Personalised learning ensures that no child is overlooked or left behind, with effective strategies to close attainment gaps.
Our motto is:
UNITY – STRENGTH – ENDEAVOUR
Our focus on standards ensures all students make progress across the curriculum. To improve standards of literacy and numeracy at Key Stage 3, the Academy has chosen this as its specialism. The objective is to improve standards of reading, writing, listening and speaking.
The Pastoral Programme is designed to develop responsible and positive attitudes with a focus on enrichment and a culture of sharing best and outstanding practice.
The Academy is keen to develop skills and abilities both in and beyond the curriculum. The Academy values the contribution of its student body through its Student Senate where opinions are heard and possible solutions explored.
We believe in partnership working with parents and hold regular meetings known as Parents’ Forum. The Academy works closely with other E-ACT Academies to strengthen links and enhance the teaching and learning experience. Links with local businesses enable us to enhance the learning experience of our students.
