Our Vision

We have the highest expectations of both staff and students in all aspects of academy life and demand nothing but the best. Through strong discipline and outstanding teaching, every student will be supported to achieve success and realise their full potential.

We are committed to providing stimulating, challenging and engaging learning experiences that ignite imagination and a thirst for knowledge in our students. We invest heavily in staff development to ensure that Teaching, Learning and Assessment are very much at the heart of everything we do.

Whilst academic excellence is important, we are equally passionate about developing students as lifelong learners and promote core values of hard work, courtesy, co-operation and service. We provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment where every student is cared for and supported to become a well rounded and respectful citizen, fully prepared to make a sustained and substantial contribution to both the local and global community.

Please take time to explore our website. We encourage visits to our state-of-the art Academy building, particularly during the day where you will meet some of our talented and dedicated students and staff who are all immensely proud to belong to Newark Academy.
