Academy Profile

Academy Ethos

The academy is extremely proud of its Christian character. This underpins the values and ethos that the academy promotes in the form
of respect, hard work, determination, aspiration, caring for others and courage. We promote these values through high expectations of students to approach
their studies and their interaction with others in an extremely positive manner, encouraging strong moral values.

Our students are given all the care and attention they need and respond to the high expectations in all aspects of academy life. Each student belongs to one of four houses consisting of several mixed age form groups each with a tutor to provide strong individual support and guidance. Students have the opportunity to lead and learn from each other, make sensible choices, work and compete as part of a team whilst developing their learning and life skills. 

All aspects of our work is underpinned by our inclusive ethos and we have enhanced provision for students with special educational needs and disabilities that is highly regarded both locally and regionally.

As you would expect visitors regularly comment on the calm and purposeful atmosphere, the fantastic climate for learning and the sense of pride exhibited by all students and staff in the academy – so why not come and see it for yourself.
