At Phoenix Academy our ethos is clear and we are unwavering in our dedication to it: "High Expectations. No Excuses. No Shortcuts.” We simply believe that every child, regardless of background or prior achievement, can be successful if given great teaching and pastoral support.

At Phoenix we are creating an environment where it’s safe to be happy and where everyone strives for success. Our mission is to create a school of the highest standard that achieves this through recruiting and training excellent teachers and support staff, and by developing a pastoral system that ensures no child is left behind.

At Phoenix we place the curriculum at the heart of academy life and believe all strategic decisions should flow from this. Our academic curriculum ensures that all students get the opportunity to study academic disciplines and to wrestle with ways of thinking that take them beyond their everyday understandings. This is because at Phoenix, we believe that all learners should encounter and wrestle with ways of constructing knowledge and ways of thinking that are above their everyday experiences, and see that academic concepts are different from everyday concepts and ways of explaining the world.

We want all our teachers to be subject experts, immersed in the scholarship of their subject and keen to share that passion with every student in the Academy. Alongside this we are also passionate that every student develops into a polite and well-rounded young person through exposure to a varied diet of enriching experiences. We are developing a unique Adventure Learning and wilderness survival programme and are heavily invested in the Duke of Edinburgh Programme. 

We also want to look after our staff; this includes free access to our leisure centre and swimming pool, excellent CPD and career enhancement and free breakfast and lunch each day.
