  • Welcome To Our School


    Future Academies’ highest priority is the wellbeing of its pupils, staff and wider communities.

    Following recent guidance from the UK government, we have set out plans to reopen Phoenix Academy on Tuesday 16th June to Year 10 students. These plans are contingent on a number of factors, including risk assessments and the wider national statistics. In the first instance, we will welcome back students in Year 10 alongside the current cohort of vulnerable and key worker children.

    We have prepared the school site so it is safe and secure for everyone. The safety of our students and wider community, is our utmost priority. A COVID-19 certificate will be displayed on the school gate in recognition of us being safe enough to re-open.

    We will welcome back Year 10 on Tuesday 16th June.

    Please follow the latest guidance from the Government and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.

    Ofqual has published a message to students to reassure them that they, and exam boards, will do everything they can to make sure that grades are fair and students are not disadvantaged because of this unprecedented situation.

    The school will operate a monitored answer machine for urgent messages; please dial 020 8749 1141 to access this service.

    We will continue to update you as often as possible. Thank you for your continued support.

    Welcome to Phoenix Academy. We are committed to getting the best out of every child and we achieve this through the twin pillars of our rigorous academic curriculum and an extensive enrichment programme.

    Our academic curriculum is at the heart of school life and ensures that all students get the opportunity to study academic disciplines and to wrestle with ways of thinking that take them beyond everyday understandings.

    Alongside the classroom experience, we place equal value on wider life experiences. We have a tremendous Adventure Learning Programme that is designed to ensure every student experiences the awe and wonder of the natural world and we are heavily involved in the Duke of Edinburgh award. Alongside this, we have a Phoenix passport that enables every student to take part in a wide range of activities, such as Debating and Public Speaking, that will help them develop into confident, articulate and resilient young people.

    Whilst we want all our students to leave Phoenix with the currency they need to access the next stage of their education, we know that getting great exam results is only half of a good education. So we deliver as many opportunities as we can for every child to flourish outside the classroom.

    As part of Future Academies, we have access to world class staff training and development, as well as expertise from the Curriculum Centre and Teaching School. Being part of a family of schools ensures that we can keep learning and evaluating our impact to ensure that every child who comes to Phoenix leaves as a well-rounded and polite individual with the drive and resources to lead a happy and successful life.
