Good Student Achievement

Achievement is good. Students make good progress in all subjects. The standards reached by students leaving the academy in Year 11 improved on all indicators in 2013. They are set to improve again in 2014.

Good Teaching

The quality of teaching is good. Teachers exhibit very good subject knowledge and have high expectations of their students. As a result of the excellent relationships and well established routines in the classroom, teachers are able to take risks with their teaching and be more creative with the activities they provide.

Good Student Behaviour

Students reflect on holocaust with Poland trip

A group of our students made a special trip to Poland recently to visit the concentration camps at Auschwitz Berkenau.

A party of 36 students, along with four members of staff, took time out from their normal lessons to make the visit which had been arranged to complement the work they had been covering in History and Philosophy & Ethics.

A summer school of fun at George Eliot

Students attending this year’s summer school had the opportunity to try out all kinds of activities and trips ranging from trampoline, kayaking and badminton through to languages, arts, crafts and rock climbing.
