We know just how important it is to think big and to help break those glass ceilings faced by young people today. Together we can encourage our pupils to step out from their comfort zones, build self-esteem and broaden their horizons.
Keen to challenge young people with opportunities they may not even know exists yet? We aim to raise pupils’ aspirations so they begin to believe in themselves and understand that there is no thing holding them back, including where they happen to live or their family’s experience in education.
We believe in looking beyond textbooks and whiteboards, and are committed to developing our pupils by enabling them to challenge themselves in new ways and supporting them to maintain their emotional and physical wellbeing.
By helping our teachers to develop into leaders within the profession, we know that we are also helping our pupils to develop into the leaders of the future.
We have an exciting opportunity for an LSA o join an academy that is really going places. There is a real buzz about our academy and the rate at which our pupils progress, but don’t just take our word for it and come and see us for yourself.
