About Mascalls Academy
Mascalls Academy is a mixed comprehensive academy that provides an excellent all-round education in a friendly and supportive environment. We are dynamic, forward-thinking and aim to prepare students for the challenges they will face after school and enable them to acquire life skills, self-awareness and compassion. We want our students to not only make the most of their abilities, but also to become adults who can make a valuable contribution to society over the course of their adult lives. We celebrate each individual student and aim to ensure that they leave the academy as confident young adults who have high self-esteem and are prepared for the next stage in their lives. Our staff are extraordinarily hard-working and go beyond the call of duty to help each student reach their full potential.
We are also proud of the pastoral care we provide for our students. We value them as individuals and do everything in our power to make their time here as happy as possible and to help them cope with the ups and downs of different stages of life through to adulthood. We have very positive relationships with our students’ parents and believe very strongly that by working closely with them, we can support their children most effectively.
We have a fantastic rural location in Kent. Mascalls Academy is heavily oversubscribed and expanding rapidly with an extensive building programme and outstanding ICT facilities. We have 1400 pupils including 200 in Sixth Form.
The school’s aim is to provide a broad range of educational opportunities for all students regardless of their ability or background, to develop their potential to the full and to enable
them to become confident, caring adults with the competencies necessary for success in adult life and life-long learning.
The school has an ethos which is shared by staff and students alike and which is founded on respect:
- for each other
- for hard work
- for achievement
- for our community and our environment
Our 5 Core Values:
- Be Honest and Respectful
- Maintain a Safe Environment
- Do your Best
- Have High Expectations
- Be Positive and Enjoy Learning
Close partnership with parents and mutual respect in this partnership underpins all we do.
