Academy Ethos

Our academy prides itself on having high expectations for our students and is built upon effective partnerships between school, students, families and the wider community.

The need to create socially aware citizens is a key aspect of the work of the academy and this is done through the ‘Academy Values’ which will become an integral part of a student’s learning within the school.

Ash Hill Academy is fully inclusive. All students are dealt with as individuals and plans are put in place to support their needs as and when this is appropriate.

Attendance at the academy has improved significantly since its opening and this is helping to raise standards of attainment and achievement. Students and their families are supported in order to ensure that their well-being is at the forefront of the work that we do.

The academy operates a robust climate for learning policy that rewards students for their positive contribution to the academy but also deals robustly with any issues that may arise. The anti-bullying policy at the academy is used effectively and parents and students are complimentary about the systems that are in place.
