WELCOME FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL
Our Academy prides itself on the mission statement of ‘Success For All’ We are ‘a diverse learning community, that enables all our individuals to achieve.’
We are a truly inclusive Academy where every member is of ‘great value’. We learn together in our Christian community and we cater for all students of all ability ranges and academic needs.
All our students follow a personalised pathway leading to them achieving their true maximum potential.
“There is a positive culture for learning within the academy.” OFSTED
At The Academy of St Francis of Assisi, we encourage all our students to achieve success, to be self-motivated and to aim high to fulfil their dreams for a rewarding future career. Our aim is to ensure that all our students are well educated, confident, respectful, caring, hardworking and aspirational.
In order that we reflect our mission, the core ethos of our community is based on the following Values, which provide hope for all:
Respect – Ambition – Pride – Happiness – Peace and Reconciliation
In addition to these values, we also take great pride in our environmental specialism, which offers a wide range of learning opportunities for our students and staff, as we strive to preserve and respect the earth’s resources in order to secure sustainable living for well into the future.
Ensuring that we are true to our values and living them out each day, is a basic expectation for every member of our community. Our values and our specialism are key to creating a safe, future proof learning environment where both our staff and students thrive, flourish and enjoy their learning.
Finally, as you can probably sense, I am immensely proud of The Academy of St Francis of Assisi. It is my passion and I believe in this community whole heartedly. I am deeply committed to ensuring that every child leaves us at the end of his or her Academy life with the brightest of futures and the happiest of memories. I hope you enjoy reading this prospectus and I look forward to welcoming you into our community.
