About Tudor Grange Academy Worcester
Tudor Grange Academy has quickly developeded a reputation as a school that is truly in the community. We opened on September 1st 2009 and with the support of the outstanding sponsor school Tudor Grange School, Solihull, we have made great strides forward.
The ethos of the Academy is built around a set of core values:
- Meeting the needs of every student
- Quality in all that we do
- Raising horizons
- Blending tradition and innovation
- The whole is greater than the parts
- Inclusive and collaborative
The Academy provides a broad, balanced, innovative and motivating curriculum, individually tailored to the needs of each student. We are always outward-facing, because learning in the home and the community is as important as learning in the classroom and because we want our students to be active members of their local, national and international communities.
We know that everyone is different & whatever their flair or talent, we prioritise developing their aspirations through new experiences. We dedicate an afternoon a week for most students to pursue new experiences or access the time, people and resources they need to be able to excel in their chosen field through our skills, action and service curriculum.
The students at the Academy are constantly stretched with problem-solving tasks demanding higher-order thinking and new applications of prior learning. Though we feel that the students need to be aware of the individual disciplines of subjects we are careful to organise our curriculum so that they are able to recognise links between their learning and see the relevance of the skills they are developing in real-life contexts.
Central to the Academy is the college structure which has a focus on building a culture of success where achievement is highly valued, celebrated and rewarded. The five college structure allows us to create `schools within the school' so that students really feel that they are a part of their learning community and so that we are alert to and able to respond to the ever-changing needs of every individual in the Academy.
