A new headteacher is at the heart of a transformation at Sir Robert Pattinson Academy.
Dale Hardy arrived at the academy in the Autumn and his determination to create a thriving school is shining through.
Sir Robert Pattinson was already renowned for ensuring pupils were not just well educated but encouraged and supported to become valued members of society.
The Academy made sure that understanding and preparing for the world of work were integrated fully alongside excellent international programs which include links with schools all over the world, international expeditions and exchange opportunities.
Now Mr Hardy is building on the success by further developing an atmosphere where students are safe, valued, happy, challenged and strive to achieve their best.
The Academy has high expectations of both teachers and students. Challenging targets are set for all and pupils and teachers support each other to achieve them, monitoring accurately the progress of students during the year.
Sir Robert Pattinson Academy has talented and committed staff. Both teachers and support staff are focused on ensuring that every student succeeds in a harmonious and supportive community.
We aim for our students to develop socially as well as academically, be confident about themselves, motivated by a strong sense of personal worth and show consideration for others.
The Academy has a strong ethos that every student should value, enjoy, respect and be excited by learning and the world around them – giving them a unique opportunity to achieve and be successful.
