|Message from the Head of Academy
It is with great pride that I have been given the opportunity to be Head of Maltings Academy. Maltings student-centred approach makes it a truly caring and supportive environment to learn but one that is underpinned by aspiration and a commitment to each student fulfilling their targets and potential.
The partnerships that exist between the dedicated staff, families and community are evident and play a pivotal role in responding to the needs of every student that attends the academy. I am eager to continue this positive school culture and forge strong connections to ensure the best education possible for our students.
It is my desire to work in collaboration with you to provide our students with the best of opportunities for their learning and futures.
At Maltings Academy our aim is to create a centre of excellence with a clear focus on students being happy and having the opportunity to succeed both in the academic arena and in extra-curricular activities. We place great emphasis on 'Discipline with Dignity', in order to foster a supportive and friendly atmosphere for each individual, which will help them develop into responsible members of the community who have high aspirations and a belief in their own abilities.
We have a wonderful opportunity for new beginnings and as Executive Principal, my expectations are for people to be happy in the academy, for everyone to be polite, smile and be courteous at all times (holding doors open is a prime example), and ‘To make our best better’.
We would be delighted for you to visit the Academy to see our pleasant, vibrant, disciplined environment.
