They came, they saw, they were impressed!

We were visited by Her Majesty’s Chief Inspectors on 20th and 21st June 2017. The inspectors visited all classes and examined all aspects of the Academy. I am thrilled to announce that in every aspect our Academy was graded as 'good' with several elements of outstanding teaching and practice. The report is reflective of our conscientious, dedicated and diligent staff who plan effective learning whilst providing an exceptional pastoral care that enables students to engage and respect one another and our Academy. The staff ensure that our curriculum remains broad and balanced and guarantee that learning meets the needs of all our students. The full report is enclosed in this newsletter.
