Demonstrating our core values

Ambition, Resilience, Pride, and Social Action are the 4 core values of our Academy. These values are demonstrated regularly by our students through taking part in activities such as enrichment clubs, trips and visits, and competing in our house competitions. We expect all of our students to embrace the experiences and possibilities on offer, both inside and outside the classroom, and seize the opportunities to gain additional qualifications that set them apart!
Additional qualifications being offered through our personal development offer include:

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is designed to challenge young people between the ages of 14–24 to attain standards of achievement and endeavour in a wide variety of active interests – to serve their communities, experience adventure and to develop and learn outside the classroom.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award helps students along the path to a productive and prosperous future. Many participants say, it’s life-changing and well worth the dedication and hard work. Achieving this award will, not only give students fantastic skills and confidence but also an edge over others when applying for college, university or a job.

Our Achieve programme, which has recently been recognised by Ofsted as supporting students’ emotional health and wellbeing, is a flexible provision for 11–19 year olds that gives them the opportunity to develop the skills and confidence needed to succeed in education.

From improving attainment, attendance, personal and social skills and engagement with education, Achieve helps young people to develop healthy habits – incorporating the best of our life skills teaching helping to shape our students futures.
