Head of School’s Welcome

We are an academy with a clear commitment to the highest of expectations and achievement for all, with an excellent team of committed staff and outstanding facilities. 

Our ambition is to ensure that all our students achieve their potential in order to secure their future employability within a safe, healthy and supportive environment. We also aim for all our students to develop as confident, courteous and capable young people. We work hard and expect our students to work equally hard to achieve these goals. 

We have a large team of qualified teaching and support staff who are committed to ensuring lessons are engaging and challenging. We offer support where support is needed and stretch and challenge each child to do the best they can. We also benefit from working with partner schools within the Future Schools Trust; through sharing skills, expertise and good practice, we can ensure that our students experience engaging teaching. 

We are also proud of the pastoral care we provide for our students. We value them as individuals and do everything in our power to make their time here as enjoyable as possible.

I look forward to welcoming you to Cornwallis Academy.

Mrs McMahon, Head of School
