I would like to wish you a warm welcome to Northern Education Trust’s – The Grangefield Academy website. I am both delighted and honoured to be the Principal at The Grangefield Academy and consider myself very lucky to interact daily with the students who are polite, enthusiastic, hardworking, ambitious and, most importantly, proud to be part of The Grangefield Academy and Northern Education Trust. This sense of pride is evident in every aspect of day to day life at The Grangefield Academy from the exemplary standards of uniform and behaviour both inside and outside of the academy to the high participation rates in the extensive range of extra-curricular and enrichment activities on offer.
I hope you already share, or will come to share, my belief that The Grangefield Academy is an exceptional place to attend as a student or to work in as an adult. At The Grangefield Academy we demonstrate a daily commitment to our high expectations and have a no excuses culture as we prepare our students for the challenge of a rapidly changing world.
We recognise that our students have different abilities, needs and interests and we provide a broad and flexible curriculum which is regularly reviewed. We have an excellent staff base which ensures that students achieve their full potential regardless of their starting points. In 2018, The Grangefield Academy GCSE results were significantly above national average and had a progress 8 score of +0.57 which was in the top 3% nationally.
At The Grangefield Academy, we take pride in the positive partnership we have with parents and carers. We believe that by home and the academy working together we can provide the very best opportunities for young people. We are unashamedly focused on the educational outcomes of our students and firmly believe that our students deserve to achieve the very best grades. We fully embrace the vision of our Trust:
“We constantly focus on standards as we understand outcomes are paramount. Our decision making is driven entirely by what is best for children. By doing this we enhance the life chances of the children and young people in our care.”
