Perryfields is a vibrant and caring school that

places the students at the centre of each decision we take.

In May 2021, we were delighted for Perryfields to become part of Broadleaf

Partnership Trust. We continue to enjoy working collaboratively within a small

network of academies, to provide opportunities for both our students and staff to

thrive and excel, whilst maintaining our individual flair as an academy.

Whilst at Perryfields, our students are empowered to be aspirational, resilient and

independent learners. Our broad and balanced curriculum helps to cultivate the

individual, fostering a love of learning and the desire to achieve. It is designed to

enhance the development of our students with both subject specific and transferable

skills, preparing them for the future and wider-world. This is reflected in our

consistently good exam results.

Underpinning our culture of ambition is a strong and supportive pastoral system. The

promotion of positive mental health and wellbeing encourages our learners to unlock

their potential, within a kind and friendly environment. We equip our students with

the life skills they need to succeed both academically and socially, so they can be

well-rounded members of the wider community.

We pride ourselves on working as a united team
