Life to the full in pursuit of what is good, right, and true

He is also the CEO of The Mercian Trust, and will continue in this role following the legal merger.

Welcome from our Headteacher

Our educational philosophy is simple.

First and foremost we want every child to feel happy and excited about coming to the Academy. Only when each child feels secure and comfortable can we challenge them to grow and learn together.

We want our students to return home telling their families of the memorable exciting learning experiences they have enjoyed. Experiences that make it easier to recall the detail necessary for exam success and experiences that develop their character as much as their academic potential.

Our passion is helping young people to flourish and become confident capable adults ready for the world ahead.

This passion creates a genuine warmth that supports every member of our community. Our traditional family values and Academy ethos, ‘To seek for that which is good, right and true’ helps to keep the academic and well-being of every child sharply in focus and drives our ambition for continual improvement.

Only if our staff can say that what we provide is good enough for their own children is it good enough for yours and I’m proud to say this commitment to care, coupled with high academic ambition is helping all our young people to succeed.

Mr Mark Arnull, Headteacher
