The Academy offers a broad and a balanced curriculum. Our aim is to nurture the talent and abilities that all young people possess. Increasingly, our curriculum caters for individual needs regardless of age, so that students work at the pace that is right for them.
Continual assessment and feedback is built in to every department's programme of teaching to ensure students achieve our higher levels.
Students who are gifted and talented are carefully monitored and supported by the Gifted and Talented co-ordinator. Special events - often at Brunel University, one of our sponsors - stretch the more able students in all subjects.
In addition to our academic curriculum, we offer a rich physical education and after-school curriculum for all students and the local community. This includes access to specialist and pre-vocational qualifications in coaching, sports science, media, leisure and hospitality.
We have a strong programme of support for family learning and adult education in the community in leisure and sport, to promote health and well-being.
