Welcome to The Peak Academy

Welcome to the website of The Peak Academy. It really is a wonderful school in which to learn, or work, and we are extremely proud of our achievements and pupils.

We are proud of our school and we are a vibrant, outward looking community. Our pupils are encouraged to work independently and seize the opportunities offered to them, including a rich programme of curricular activities. We help them to develop high aspirations and to work to the highest standards, ensuring our pupils and students leave with the best options open to them.

We are committed to active, creative, reflective learning, maximised by encouragement to each individual pupil to achieve their best in every aspect of their development. We celebrate innovation and are committed to nurturing high self- esteem and respect for others. We believe that everyone can learn both socially and academically, becoming dynamic, independent thinkers with a lifelong love of learning. We believe this is best achieved by asking questions, solving problems and making thoughtful decisions.

Please do take time to read the website. I am sure that you will be impressed by the range of activities offered and the creative pupils who attend The Peak Academy.
