Vision and values
The Academy prides itself on being a “child centred-school”. It believes in hard work to achieve excellence.
The Academy sees its core purpose to maximise success for every student and it challenges students by setting targets, which are reviewed regularly.
Along with hard work the school also has a vision that its pupils will finish their education with the following values; courage, respect for others, a school life they enjoyed, honesty and integrity, humility and compassion, tolerance and forgiveness, confidence to lead, and finally, kindness.
At Clarendon Academy all its teaching staff are challenged to be consistently outstanding.
“Students’ progress is tracked and monitored exceptionally well. Consequently, students of all abilities make good progress from their starting points across a range of subjects. Teaching is at least good and some is outstanding. Students say how much they value their teachers’ support and encouragement to prepare them for their examinations. Behaviour in lessons is excellent. Students have a thirst for knowledge and greatly enjoy their learning. The atmosphere around the academy is very calm. Students are exceptionally polite and courteous. They have pride in their school, which is evident in the way they wear the uniform and in the absence of litter and graffiti.”
