Welcome from the Principal
"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today."
Greensward Academy has a long history of academic success, pastoral care and curriculum enrichment; having served the local community for generations it is a much loved and respected institution. As Principal I am both committed to preserving these traditions of the past whilst at the same time ensuring that it is upon the future that we are firmly and resolutely focused.
Indeed, any visitor who takes the opportunity to tour our corridors and classrooms, talk with our staff and engage with our students will discover a school where the talents of each and every learner are nurtured. If your strength lies in academic rigour, we will challenge you. If your strength lies in sporting prowess, we will develop you. If your strength lies in creative expression, we will inspire you.
As a school, we understand the importance of instilling a sense of community into those who pass through our care whilst at the same time ensuring that, when they leave us, they are ready to shape our globalised world. With an emphasis on good manners, respect, tolerance and acceptance, Greensward Academy can be rightfully proud of its students and staff. With our new buildings and open spaces, a dynamic curriculum offering opportunity for all and a pastoral care which sees everyone as an individual, I am confident that we have the right learning environment to ensure our 21st century learners are ready to embrace the challenges of our 21st century world.

Our Mission, Vision and Values
As an AET academy, at Greensward Academy our mission is pure and simple: to enable our students to lead remarkable lives. This is the golden thread that binds us all together – the reason that despite our very different paths to Greensward, we are all part of one family.
At Greensward Academy we want each and every child inspired to choose a Remarkable Life.
To gather and motivate inspirational people committed to delivering an excellent education that launches children into remarkable lives.
BE UNUSUALLY BRAVE
As an AET academy, we choose to be unusually brave. We're not afraid to challenge wrongs, to make the right call, even when it's both unusual and difficult to do so.
DISCOVER WHAT'S POSSIBLE
We are on the search for discovering what's possible. At Greensward Academy we look to create 'eureka moments' for our students, helping them discover a world of possibilities and opportunities.
PUSH THE LIMITS
We always strive to push the limits. We don't settle for less than excellent and we won't allow our students to either. We resolve to overcome any self-imposed limits.
At Greensward Academy we commit to being big-hearted. We choose to treat each other with kindness, warmth and care, believing that everybody matters and believing in one another.
