Excellence is a habit where high expectations and high performance are the norm;

All students aim high, achieving results without excuses;

As Principal, I am determined to ensure that your child gets the best education possible and that they can achieve their dreams without limit.

Students are invited to take part in a range of extracurricular activities and enrichment. We ensure that as well as academic success, our young people develop really positive characteristics that are needed in future life. These include curiosity, enthusiasm, empathy, resilience and self-belief.

I would strongly encourage you to visit the school, be it as a potential student with their parent or carer, a business looking to get more involved in the school’s curriculum or as anyone in the community that has an interest in the learning of young people.

We look forward to welcoming you to Unity City Academy in the future.
