Assessment and homework are purposeful and students are offered a wide variety of experiences both within and outside of school, through our super-curriculum, referred to as the ‘Broadway Geographical Society’.

As well as striving for academic excellence in school, the directorate runs a wide range of interdisciplinary experiences to enhance understanding of the connections between subjects, as well as to provide a wealth of cultural capital for our students.

You will benefit from working within a school which encourages staff and students to be aspirational. Staff development is a priority and staff are empowered to continue their own learning. Alongside external training opportunities, the academy has developed an accelerated leadership programme linked to NPQML and NPQSL and offers a range of induction and CPD programmes.
