Greensward Academy is a member of the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) whose aim is to provide the opportunity for all young learners to fulfil their real potential, broaden their horizons and become active, prosperous and successful citizens in the world around them. The AET believes that all young people deserve to become world class learners - to learn, enjoy succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment, with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up to date resources available to them. At Greensward Academy, we believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to have a life that can be described as good quality, free from fear and danger where they can give and receive respect to and from others with a sense of well being, belonging, worth and achievement.
To work at Greensward Academy is to work at a school which puts the child at the centre of everything that they do. If a student’s strength lies in academic rigour, they will be challenged. If it lies in sporting prowess they will be developed. If it lies in creative expression, they will be inspired. The opportunity to work alongside engaged, motivated and resilient students, including those in a high performing Sixth Form, is one to be valued.
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, 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, we are 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.
In 2014 the academy was judged as Good by Ofsted. Here is what they had to say about us:
"Students do well in this academy. They enter at national averages in Year 7 and by the end of Year 11 they reach well above national standards across a range of subjects." "All students make outstanding progress in mathematics because of the outstanding teaching they receive." "Students who join the academy at or below the national average make much better progress in English than similar schools nationally." "The academy is a nurturing place that inspires teachers and students to 'make their best better'". "Behaviour is good as teachers show respect for students. Students respect their teachers and each other within this courteous community."
Our students say ...
"Greensward is a really friendly school and you won't find another school that will give you what Greensward gives you. You won't want to leave." "The teachers are helpful and supportive and make you do the best you can." "The academy has a vast variety of good teachers who know what they are doing." "There are good teacher/student relationships and a lot less bullying here than at primary school."
