Head's Message

My name is Chris Fisher, I am the proud Head of School of our wonderful academy and would like to welcome you to our website.

Newark Academy is an inclusive 11–18 school where, through our ethos of ‘Work Hard, Be Kind’, every child is supported to achieve academic and personal success. Our expert teachers deliver amazing classroom experiences which engage and inspire children to develop a thirst and excitement for lifelong learning.

We pride ourselves on providing excellent pastoral care which ensures children are supported to grow as confident, resilient and responsible individuals who are able to make positive contributions to society.

We set unashamedly high expectations and standards for all so that our environment is one where harmonious teaching and learning can take place, ensuring everyone is happy and able to succeed.

We are dedicated to providing experiences for all children, within and beyond the classroom, which are designed to develop character. We offer a variety of enrichment opportunities in sport and the arts, and regularly celebrate success in local and county level competitions and through music show cases and drama productions. We are committed to broadening experiences for all children by providing opportunities beyond the classroom to develop strong character traits. We are also passionate about student leadership and provide a wide range of leadership opportunities where children are able to develop enterprise skills such as communication, confidence and team work, preparing them for the next phase of their educational journey and on to employment.

We are committed to our GREAT values and work cohesively as a ‘crew’ to encourage and support each other to achieve success.

Thank you for visiting our website, I hope you find it a useful and interesting source of information.
