Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Phoenix Academy

We are committed to getting the best out of every child, and we aim to achieve this through the twin pillars of a rigorous academic curriculum and an extensive enrichment programme.

Our academic curriculum sits at the heart of school life and ensures that all students have the opportunity to study academic disciplines and to wrestle with ways of thinking that take them beyond everyday understanding. Working with the Curriculum Centre at Future Academies, we provide students access to a broad and balanced, knowledge-rich curriculum, specifically designed to open their eyes to the best that has been thought and said.

However, whilst we want all our students to leave Phoenix equipped with the results needed to access the next stage of their education and achieve their ambitions, we know that a good education is not comprised of results alone. Therefore, we deliver as many opportunities as we can for every child to flourish outside the classroom. 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 also heavily involved in the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme. Alongside this, our Phoenix passport scheme 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.

As part of the Future Academies family of schools, 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 multi-academy trust helps us to continuously evaluate and assess our impact to ensure that each and every child who comes to Phoenix leaves us as a well-rounded and polite individual, furnished with the drive and resources they require to lead a happy and successful life.
