About us

The academy firmly believes in ensuring that all students enjoy their education, achieve to the best of their ability, make a positive contribution to society and become fully prepared for further study and the world of work.  Every student is supported to achieve through a wide variety of support networks, including our vertical House Tutoring system which promotes a ‘family ethos’ that runs throughout the academy.

Although academic achievement is clearly central to what we work towards, there are also a wide range of enrichment opportunities available for all our students.  Our sports facilities are exceptional and we have a range of activities to further enrich the educational experience of students. Other areas of the academy also offer enrichment activities, whether it be making rockets in science club or performing in school productions through drama club.

As Principal of the academy, I am extremely honoured to lead such a dedicated team of students and staff. Our academy status ensures a strengthened opportunity to extend the improvement of the school, building upon existing strengths, whilst also securing transformational change in the opportunities for students, staff and the wider community by working in formal partnership with other schools within the locality as part of the Delta Academies Trust group.

I hope that the website provides you with sufficient information and a key point of contact for all the latest news and events and I look forward to sharing with you many more opportunities and items of success as we move forward.
