Ethos

‘Knutsford Academy promotes the academic success and personal development of all its students and enables them to meet the future with confidence and enthusiasm’.

Academic achievement and success is really important to us, for the qualifications students gain represent a passport through to their next stage after the Academy, be that into employment or continuing education.

Our most recent Ofsted inspection was in March 2016 and the inspectors were keen to point out that results are similar to or above national figures, the Academy’s good track record of raising achievement for disadvantaged students, and strong results in the Sixth Form. They also highlighted that students are safe, that behaviour is good or better, and that teachers are knowledgeable and promote positive attitudes in students.

Our ethos is delivered through our three values: Academic Excellence, Strong Community and World Class Opportunities.

Academic Excellence

We provide a supportive and challenging environment to ensure our students achieve academic excellence at Knutsford Academy.

Strong Community

We draw on the strength of our community within Knutsford Academy, and work with our local community around Knutsford.

World Class Opportunities

We aim to prepare our students for life beyond school by providing world class opportunities.
