Aims and values

Welcome to the Acle Academy website. Whether an existing parent, prospective parent, student or visitor- we hope this website provides you with the information needed to support student progress and to give you an insight into the life of our wonderful school. 

At Acle, we are driven by a strong moral imperative that rests on social equity. We believe passionately that every child has the right to a high quality education, regardless of background, and that it is our duty as educationalists to ensure that our students are equipped with the knowledge, skills and self-assurance to fulfil their aspirations in an increasingly competitive environment. 

At Acle Academy we are dedicated to creating a culture which helps prepare students not just for exam results but for life long learning. To thrive in the 21st century, it is not enough to leave school with a clutch of examination certificates. Students need to have learnt how to be tenacious and resourceful, imaginative and logical, self-disciplined and self-aware, collaborative and inquisitive. We believe that the core purpose of education is to prepare young people for life after school; helping them to build up the mental, emotional, social and strategic resources to enjoy challenge and cope well with uncertainty and complexity. We also believe that confidence, capability and passion can be developed in all students irrespective of their starting points.  Real world intelligence is not something we are born with, we can all develop the skills needed to succeed with the right mind set.
