Our approach

By promoting the highest standards of teaching and learning, and working with the families of our children and young people, we look to ensuring to that the child is at the core of all we do.

The idea of creating an Academy of several schools grew out of a belief that schools working together and supporting each other is the best way to achieve success. It means that we can share skills and experiences more widely. We can extend our social networks for our children and families and pool resources providing them with a greater range of opportunities.
