  • Provide a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum appropriate to the needs of each child or young person, taught and assessed through individual learning programmes.
  • Provide relevant opportunities and experiences out of the Academy to help our young people understand being part of a wider community.
  • Develop the self esteem, self awareness and confidence of each of our pupils.
  • Work in partnership with parents, carers and other professionals.

Our Sixth form students have been learning about road safety over the last few weeks. They have been safely practicing their skills in our school car park and have done a great job at remembering to use the steps in the Green Cross Code. Well done
