The Academy has a growing reputation both locally and regionally. Whilst we appreciate the unique setting in which the Academy is placed, we work hard to challenge students from a variety of backgrounds to be the best they can be in all areas of life. Our mission here is simple: we want to give people the best chance of success. This underpinned by our ethos of Dream Big, Work Hard, Be Kind. We want students to 'climb the mountain' in order to achieve success both academically and by developing a confident, resilient and hard working character. The Academy was judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted in November 2019, noting that ‘Pupils are proud of their school’ and ‘They feel safe’.  The Academy continues its improvement journey, being over-subscribed in a number of Year Groups.  Our students are excited to learn, are increasingly successful in reaching their potential and are real ambassadors for our community. Staff are hard working and supportive, and leaders consider carefully the wellbeing of colleagues. If you want to work in an environment that is high challenge, low threat, that takes great pride in developing people and works together to give students the best chance of success, then this is the academy for you.
