Values and vision

The Frances Bardsley Academy exists to empower young women with the knowledge and personal characteristics needed to live successful and fulfilling lives. We believe:

KNOWLEDGEABLE: We acquire knowledge so we can confidently move onto further and higher education, join the world of work, make sense of the world and live successful and fulfilling lives.

RESILIENT: We learn to be optimistic and will not give up when things are challenging. We learn a range of strategies to manage difficult situations so that we can cope when things are tough.

ARTICULATE: We develop the skills to communicate effectively with a wide range of audiences in whatever situation we find ourselves.

CREATIVE: We learn to think and act creatively so that we can solve problems and express ourselves. We explore sports and arts and engage in a wide range of imaginative and innovative activities so we find the things we love to do and ways we can contribute to society.

EMPATHETIC: We know how to relate well and show compassion towards others. We are learning how our actions and words can positively impact the lives of others and how we grow from listening and understanding them.

REFLECTIVE: We recognise that thinking is important and that thoughtfulness enables us to make considered judgements. We spend time weighing things up so that we better know ourselves and can make better decisions.

STUDIOUS: We are self-motivated and work hard in the pursuit of excellence and our personal goals. We are proud of spending time and energy to find out more.


“The academy is orderly and calm. Pupils say that there is very little or no bullying and that they feel safe at the academy. Pupils behave well in lessons and around the academy site. They are polite and welcoming to visitors. Pupils treat the academy environment with respect.”

“The quality of teaching and assessment continues to be good because teachers plan interesting lessons. Teachers generally give clear feedback on pupils’ work which helps pupils to improve. Pupils know their targets and the work in their books shows that they make good progress.”
