We have been graded outstanding overall. This inspection outcome and our results reflect the aspirations, determination and hard work of all students and staff at the Academy and we are always exceptionally proud of what we achieve together. We have a proven track record of school improvement, offering students an exciting curriculum and a wealth of opportunities outside of the classroom.

We believe exceptional teachers create exceptional results; they transform lives and transform futures. They support every student to achieve their full potential and become a confident, resilient and compassionate individual who can make a positive contribution to society. 

We believe that exceptional teachers should be supported too, with all the opportunities needed to develop and achieve their goals. We can offer exceptional continuous professional development, support and opportunities for career development.
