​​​​​​​Outstanding and distinctive education through a digital and creative curriculum, delivered in partnership with industry professionals.

All staff will apply elements of creative thinking and arts-based competencies in their lesson planning and delivery.

Most importantly, all students will leave the academy with the skills and qualifications they need to progress to higher education, apprenticeships or the workplace.

To ensure all students are equipped with a broad practical, social and emotional education, the academy will have a comprehensive programme of PSHME and IAG during allotted Personal Development Time.
