Values and vision

At Atlantic Academy we teach a challenging academic curriculum for all students that will support creativity and innovation. We are driven by a desire, at the core of our mission, to get the best possible results for all of our students, no matter what their starting points or circumstances. 

Our tight, robust and no-nonsense behaviour systems ensure you can really teach. Highly visible senior leaders  run centralised, daily, detentions.

We will also have a very comprehensive, and effective, personal development programme, bringing all subject areas together every week to share best practice in the classroom - using the latest research in education.
