Newark Academy has a very clear ethos focused on the achievement and well-being of all our students.

We believe that a school should be at the very heart of the community and place great value on collaboration, partnership and service alongside a range of core values that compliment academic excellence.

Work Hard, Be Kind

We develop commitment, independence and courtesy in all of our students. We expect the very highest standards and in return we value and respect student ideas and opinions.

We are relentless in the pursuit of academic excellence for every student.

We insist on the highest standards of behaviour at all times.

We care deeply about our students and expect them to work hard and be kind.

We encourage staff to be creative, independent and ambitious. We expect them to challenge and inspire our students, providing high quality learning experiences that motivate students to be the very best they can. High standards and academic rigour underpin our daily work.

We promote the development of leadership skills and offer a range of opportunities for students to take an active role in improving their school.

We believe that a wide-range of enrichment opportunities promote independent learning. Students are expected to learn beyond the classroom and to develop the skills and attributes they need to lead full and successful lives.
