Secondary Education

Our Secondary Academies combine a culture of high expectations with a focus on aspiration which supports students to deliver to the best of their ability. We follow a broad and balanced curriculum with a wide range of extra-curricular activities.

This means:

  • Well trained, highly resourced teachers who are ambitious for every student, and encourage students to achieve to the best of their ability
  • Clear, well-communicated expectations for behaviour and standards; creating an environment conducive to learning in school
  • Programmes of extra-curricular enrichment, including sport, music, drama and the arts
  • Schools embedded at the heart of their communities, with a culture of involving parents fully with their children’s education and school life
  • A culture of improvement without complacency. We expect results – and the life chances delivered to young people studying in Trust schools to improve year on year
  • Good governance, to ensure that academies exceed expectations; achieving or sustaining outstanding judgements
  • Support to help students make the right choice of post-16 destination – whether college, apprenticeships or vocational training
