Welcome from the Principals

We are honoured to lead the team at Atlantic Academy, a unique, all-through provision working to transform the lives of all of our students; inspiring them to have the confidence, character and commitment to realise their full potential. 

Our goal is to deliver a rigorous, engaging curriculum, to improve outcomes for all our students and provide opportunities for cultural enrichment.  We want all our students to live happy, healthy and productive lives. 

Our school’s unique nature and small size ensures we know your children well and can understand their needs and ambitions,  helping them to strive to achieve their very best

We are an integral part of the Portland community.  Portland and Portland’s future matter to us and we will equip your children with the skills, attitudes, academic qualifications and imagination needed for the complex and changing world ahead. 

In choosing Atlantic Academy Portland for your child, you will be joining an exceptional team.  

We are delighted to welcome you and your child to the Academy.

Miss Heppell & Mrs Bishop 

Principal for Primary & Principal for Secondary 

Our website aims to give you a flavour of life at the Academy but the best way to find out what we’re about is to arrange a visit. We are always happy to give tours and discuss the needs of your child with you on an individual basis, so please make an appointment via the office and we look forward to meeting you personally.
