We are on our journey to outstanding, we are ambitious and looking forward to an exciting future. We believe that every student can and should achieve their full potential and our commitment is one of ensuring our students develop a love of learning, a passion for enquiry and a dedication to being the best that they can be.We aim to ensure that every student is inspired and supported to achieve his/her personal best and learning comes first. Our motto is “Together We Can” and if you are interested in joining us, we would be very pleased to meet you.
As an academy, we make no excuses for having the highest expectations of our students; we believe that we should all practise courtesy, consideration and cooperation and we instil these values in the students from their very first day.
We aim to inspire and support every student to achieve his or her personal best by fostering a love of learning, a passion for enquiry and a dedication to being the best they can be. We take a collaborative approach to getting the very best out of each other and believe that we can achieve much more together.
Our curriculum is designed to encourage students to become committed, optimistic, resilient and enterprising. Learning is not just something that happens inside the classroom. We believe the young people need to learn to be internationally minded, tolerant and accepting. With one of the world’s most exciting cities on our doorstep, we do everything we can to ensure that the boys and girls in our Academy experience the best of what a big city has to offer, including museums, libraries, architecture and much more.
