Our Core Principles

  • Early Intervention – to use academy resources to target vulnerable and underachieving children and their families.
  • 4-19 Curriculum – to develop a 4-19 curriculum that meets the needs of all our pupils and ensures a consistency of language and approach towards learning from all staff.
  • Back office – to work towards reducing costs and improving services by pooling resources and skills across the Academy.
  • Partnership/Extended Schools – to provide all pupils within the academy equal access to the benefits of an excellent and broad based education
