Students in the academy routinely make more progress than almost any other school Progress 8 is consistently above 1.00 which indicates that students achieve a grade better for each of their best 8 GCSEs compared to the average. In 2017 the progress 8 score was 1.07. That is great news for our students, the academy and our community, but there is so much more that we know can be achieved and you can help.

We have a relentless ambition to deliver continuing success to the young people we serve. Our approach is based on very simple principles: clear systems and extremely high expectations. We focus on the development of our students, their values and ultimately their academic success. We maximise the impact of teaching by providing clear leadership, minimising bureaucracy and effective support that have tangible results on the quality of teaching and outcomes for our students.
