The Academy does this by raising people’s aspirations and opening up the possibilities of what they can become. Our can-do culture nurtures self-confidence and self-esteem. Our students learn through successes and setbacks on their journey of self discovery. Quality, a business and enterprise culture and outstanding leadership at all levels is central to Academy life.
As part of our innovative approach to teaching we encourage students to challenge themselves and to help others, embracing the Outward Bound approach. We have created conditions for enjoyable learning and aim for the highest standards. Close partnerships with schools, colleges and the wider community enrich the life of the Academy. We play an active role in the social and economic development of the area.
