Academy+ is an exciting new initiative that plays a key part in our ambition to provide our children with the extra skills and experiences they need to have a further 70 great years after they leave the Academy.
We have called it Academy+ because it provides support and experiences in a way that the standard curriculum does not. Each year the DFE (Department for Education) send us an amount of money per child and we use this money in the best way possible to give our children the education they need, but to become a well rounded and resilient person we believe they need to experience things outside the normal curriculum.
All the money we raise through Academy+ will enable us to pursue the broader education, that we believe our children need, to be the best they can be. This money will be used to raise resilience in our children to allow them to face down some of life's toughest challenges, but it will also be used to develop the character of our children by giving them the experiences in life that can't be taught in a normal classroom.
