About Sarum Academy
Welcome to the Sarum Academy website. Sarum Academy is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England Academy founded in 2010 delivering high quality, non-selective, personalised education to pupils aged 11-19 years. The Academy is a member of the Magna Learning Partnership Academy Trust. Sarum Academy is an ambitious school, which celebrates excellence, nurtures creativity and engenders social responsibility. We work with all pupils in helping each child to think big, work hard, exceed their ambitions and in doing so be the person God created them to be. What makes our school different is the care we afford every member of our Academy. Relationships founded on trust and respect are the lifeblood of our warm and happy school, this is why we care for one another, this is why our pupils achieve more than they think possible. As a Church of England School our ethos is underpinned by Christian values and principles and embraces the Church of England vision for young people, a vision of ‘human flourishing for all’. The four basic elements of wisdom, hope, community and dignity are reflected in our values of respect, aspiration, excellence, service, tenacity and partnership. Sarum Academy pupils leave the school as young adults, successful and thoughtful, and we are proud of each and every one of them and the contributions them make.
