Welcome From The Principal
Thank you for taking the time to look at our website.
Our Academy has a can-do enterprising culture. Our students know that, through hard work and determination, they can achieve anything and everything they set their minds to.
We combine the traditional values of discipline, respect and good behaviour with contemporary best practice in teaching and technology. With these core principles in place, we develop our students into happy, educated young people with the desire and drive to succeed.
It is very important to us that, whatever an individual student’s starting point is, he or she is given the opportunities needed to achieve his or her personal best. We are therefore particularly excited about our brand new state of the art building, offering our students the best possible learning environment.
Since we opened in September 2008, our key focus has been to raise aspirations for our students and to maximise their prospects of achieving the best possible standards - academically and socially. Thanks to their own hard work and the support of their hardworking teachers many of the Year 11s met or even exceeded both our and their expectations. 100% of them achieved at least 5 or more A*-C grades, with 68% getting 5 or more A*- C grades including both English and Maths.
We expect our current Year 11 students to do even better in 2013, and indeed many of them have already achieved a C grade or above in Maths and English a year early. Students at the Academy now realise that they can achieve excellent results and fulfill their potentials thanks to the support and guidance provided here.
If you wish to find out more about applying for a place in Year 7, please contact the Academy or your local Education Authority for more details.
