The Trust believes this outstanding design, combined with an innovative curriculum, excellent teaching and learning, and strong pastoral care and guidance, will provide outstanding education for the local community for generations to come.
Our aim is that students will aspire to be their very best and will be supported to believe in themselves and their ability to achieve and excel. Students will develop into confident, independent and resilient learners ready to meet the challenges of a world that is rapidly changing.
Our students will acquire, not only an excellent foundation of learning, but also the acquisition of habits of flexible thinking and learning, resilience and confidence in solving problems both as individuals and within a team. Students will enjoy some of the very best teaching resources and facilities available in the local area and, with the support of Barton Court Academy Trust, the School will be a special place to be educated.
