OUR ETHOS AND VALUES
We strongly believe that any student can achieve in our academy.
We have high expectations of our students and staff to deliver the highest standards. Teachers are encouraged to be imaginative and creative in the classroom in order to create motivational and inspiring lessons.
Our curriculum instils resilience in our students from the moment they enter the school. Encompassed within this innovative curriculum is our belief in a growth mindset. We believe that intelligence is far from fixed or inherited and it is an area in which we can all improve if we work hard and learn from our mistakes.
We encourage our students to experiment and take risks in their learning; to establish an environment where intelligent failure is just the start on the road to success.
We have a duty to prepare our students for the extensive examinations that they now face in the current education system. Our academies start this early in Year 7 with a structured assessment and examination calendar. We will give our students the skills and examination techniques required to succeed.
