Values and vision
All Saints’ Academy is built on four key values. The first is "outstanding" – to offer the best education in an inspiring environment. The second is "Christian" – embracing the gospel values of love, peace, justice, respect, reconciliation and service to others. The third is "inclusive" – treating everyone as unique and enabling each person to fulfil their potential. The fourth is "community" – working in partnership with parents and the local community to transform the aspirations of young people.
The new-build facilities offer a place of learning and discovery in an academy that prides itself on being outward-facing to parents, parishes, other schools, community groups, employers, colleges and universities.
“This is a good school. The academy is improving rapidly because of the outstanding leadership provided by the new Principal. He is supported well by other key senior staff, subject leaders and governors. The extremely positive ethos in the academy leads to exceptionally good behaviour by students around the building and site.”
