Our Values

"Education is the foundation upon which we build our future." 

- Christine Gregoire

Our Vision is that each and every child is inspired to choose a Remarkable Life.

Be Unusually Brave


Exploring new ideas and participating in experiences and challenges; making memories that last forever.

Discover What's Possible


Securing a love of learning and high-quality qualifications whilst building a successful future.

Push the Limits


Transforming themselves with ambition, passion and a thirst for success.

Be Big-Hearted


Developing a secure awareness of themselves, their peers and their place in the local and global community.

Our ambition is to inspire our students to see learning as a lifelong journey. We want them to all push their limits to achieve the best possible outcomes both in terms of qualifications, but also in terms of being the best person they can be in their future lives by developing into big-hearted individuals, who show kindness to each other. We want them to understand the possibilities that they have out in the wider world and not allow their ambitions to be constrained by what they perceive to be their opportunities when they join us at the beginning of their journey. We want to do this through inspiring them to question what they know and understand, what they think and what others tell them. We want them to realise that the world is full of big questions; to discover that anything is possible


Our Curriculum Intent

At Aylward Academy, we expect our students to experience a knowledge-rich, progressive and ambitious curriculum. Our curriculum is accessible for all students regardless of starting point and enables our students to confidently prepare for future education and employment by building strong foundations in literacy and numeracy.  Students are empowered to become confident communicators who embrace a love of learning and are engaged with learning beyond the classroom, in order that they become positive contributors to society. The Aylward curriculum shows our students how to be safe, and instils the principles of community and equality.


Our Academy Attributes

We want to be unusually brave and we commit to being big hearted. We chose to treat each other with kindness, warmth and care believing that everybody matters and believing in one another. The values of the School today are underpinned by the Aylward Attributes staff and students are encouraged to demonstrate 

Modern British Values

At Aylward Academy we are dedicated to promoting values which ensure that students develop a strong sense of social and moral responsibility. We prepare students for life in modern Britain because values such as individual liberty, democracy, the law, mutual respect and tolerance are embedded within the curriculum and the Aylward Academy ethos. In addition these values are promoted throughout the school year.


As school leaders, we are responsible for providing a curriculum which:


We endeavour that students:


We believe that we allow students to recognise right from wrong, resolve conflicts, understand and explore diversity, develop a moral code, understand others’ beliefs and understand how communities function. These qualities will allow them to participate fully in life in modern Britain.
