"The knowledge to succeed and skills to lead."

The Academy refreshed its values as it entered its second decade to affirm its commitment to putting learning first.

We were founded on the principle that whatever the aspiration, however unlikely it might seem, we would work tirelessly with that young person to bring it closer to reality. It is that ambition for our students which has led to, amongst other things, more than 500 students going on to university, almost every one the first generation of their family to do so. 

Ready, Respectful, Safe

To support our vision that learning comes first Academy life is built around the expectation that pupils will be:

Ready to learn

Respectful to each other, their teachers and their community

And conduct themselves in a safe manner
