At The Redhill Academy we have five principles that guide everything we do:

High expectations of all students

Valuing and celebrating academic achievement

Outstanding teaching for all students

Widening students’ experiences through a range of extra-curricular activities including sports and the performing arts

Equality and opportunity for all students and staff

Redhill was the first secondary school in Nottinghamshire to gain an “outstanding” Ofsted rating for the quality of teaching. This has now been achieved twice in succession.

At our most recent inspection (2013), Ofsted judged that “teaching is outstanding” and that “during the inspection … the teaching observed was consistently effective in capturing students’ interest and engagement”. Our students were praised for behaving ”extremely well in lessons and around the academy site” and for being “calm, considerate and courteous at all times”. The inspectors also found that “students are proud of their academy”, which to me is probably the sentence in the report that says most about what we try and do here at Redhill.
