As you know Kingsway Academy is due to close at the end of this academic year. For the students who have chosen to remain here we are determined that this year will be transformational. We have the resources, energy and total commitment to ensuring that we accelerate progress for every individual so that when they start their journey in a new context in September 2018 they are well equipped and confident in their own ability to achieve the success they deserve.
When I arrived last year we made a commitment to our students and our community that we would significantly improve the learning experience for all our students. This commitment is reflected in the exam outcomes for our outgoing year 11 of whom we are very proud. The Academy results improved from 19% 5+ A*-C grades to 45%. We intend to continue this journey and do even better next year.
Lessons will improve further within the smaller groups we are able to offer; new staff will complement those who have already demonstrated their commitment to our community. Nothing will be lost as move into the final year of Kingsway Academy. Our young people remain at the heart of all that we do and our aim is to ensure that that become leaders in their own community and in the schools and further education provision which they join in September 2018.
I am proud to work in a school and a Trust which is so dedicated to the young people that have been entrusted to us. We will give them everything they deserve.
Principal, The Kingsway Academy
