Dear Parent/Carer

At the Academy, we believe that students come to school to learn and achieve in order to live full and enriched lives. We want to empower them to contribute positively to their family, the community and the wider world. The staff, governors and trustees work hard together, along with parents and carers, to ensure that each of our students leaves with a set of results of which they can be proud.

We place a strong emphasis on developing students’ confidence through opportunities in and beyond the classroom so that they can develop their personal and academic interests. Teachers and support staff seek to meet the needs of all within a rich and balanced curriculum, underpinned by our strapline of Curiosity, Exploration and Discovery. In return, we expect all students to be fully prepared and active participants in their learning. An agreed and established set of ground rules based on respect allows everyone to get the best from lessons, activities and unstructured time.

Our students will tell you that the academy is a safe place to learn and grow. I am very proud to be part of such a warm and cohesive staff that supports and promotes the achievement and wellbeing of all children who attend here.

Yours sincerely
Alison Lusuardi, Headteacher
