Our team is proud of what has been achieved and feels confident about the future. Nevertheless, we know we have more to do.
At the heart of our academy is a commitment to know and nurture each young person who learns with us. That means an unwavering focus on progress for all, united in a shared vision. Our vision recognises both the individuality of each student and the importance of every member of staff as we seek to inspire growth. Together, we are resolved to ensure each and every student achieves their full potential and develops the skills they need to succeed in their future lives.
Achieving our vision demands outstanding teaching; it also requires inspirational and passionate leaders across all our faculties. That’s why our new Director of Faculty for Humanities will play a crucial role in our future success.
Leading from the front – influencing at both departmental and whole-school level – our new Director of Faculty will drive improvements across all humanities subject areas.
