This Academy believes in high standards, high aspirations and the highest expectations in every aspect of its operation. Students and staff are expected to take pride in their appearance and this will support in developing high levels of self-worth.
The Academy aims to give all students the foundations for a successful life by helping them to develop the skills and attitudes that will provide them with real life-chances. Students are expected to work hard and to achieve their individual best academically, to develop skills relevant to the 21st Century and to develop the self-confidence and sense of purpose necessary for success in a highly competitive global society.
A smart appearance is an increasingly important aspect of modern life as it does help a person to display an air of self-confidence and a sense of respect. The Academy aims to prepare students for a successful life and so an emphasis on taking pride in one’s own appearance is an essential part of the educational process.
