We hope that you find these documents helpful.

As an Aspirations Academy, it is a part of our ethos at Atlantic that we want every single student to aspire to the best possible future when they come to leave secondary education. 

But, above all, as they take their journey through secondary education we want them to increasingly focus on their potential for a university education or a challenging and rewarding career option after the summer of 2025. Whatever their dreams and aspirations, we want to help every student fulfil them.

I am looking forward very much to meeting with you and to building a strong and mutually supportive relationship that will take your child on that journey through Atlantic Academy.
