Academy Vision

Each individual Academy within Tollbar Family of Academies will be at the centre of its community, raising aspirations and achievement. It will do this in two ways: firstly, through the excellent teaching of an extended and balanced curriculum, which ignites curiosity, unlocks talent and realises potential; and secondly, by exercising high-quality care, guidance and support that assures the personal development and welfare of each child and young person.

All Academies within the Trust will work with both statutory and voluntary local partners, continue to promote extended learning facilities for adults as well as pupils and students, and will seek to develop further their portfolios of extra-curricular activities.

Tollbar Family of Academies aims to offer a world-class, 21st century education to the young people in all its Academies, providing life-long learning opportunities and creating centres of excellence, which model the successful practices at Tollbar Academy, bringing confidence and pride to the local community.

Tollbar Family of Academies is already a community of learners for staff and students. Excellent back- office support coupled with high-quality staff development and training frees up teachers to focus on their core task of teaching. Cross-academy working benefits the learning of staff and pupils. This community of learners exemplifies the ethos of the Trust.

We will ensure that each academy in the Trust:

  • Is aware of and responsive to the needs and ambitions of its local community;
  • Is equipped to take responsibility for raising the aspirations and achievement of its pupils;
  • Offers an exciting, extended and relevant curriculum;
  • Provides excellent teaching;
  • Recognises and shares success; identifies and works on areas in need of improvement;
  • Ensures the welfare and safety of all members of its community;
  • Ensures no individual nor group of learners loses confidence in their ability to succeed;
  • Encourages the learning attitudes of curiosity, resilience and independence;
  • Promotes care for self and each other, honesty, courtesy, tolerance, service and respect;
  • Prepares its pupils as active and responsible citizens in local, national and global contexts;
  • Prepares its pupils for the next stage in their learning and for the world of work.
