Felixstowe Academy is a key member of Academies Enterprise Trust (AET), the operational arm of the Greensward Charitable Trust, which is a federation of academies created to provide thousands of students/pupils with the best possible education.
AET aims to provide the opportunity for all young learners to fulfil their real potential, broaden their horizons and become active, prosperous and successful citizens in the world around them. AET believes that all young people deserve to become world class learners - to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment, with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up to date resources available to them.
AET is committed to doing everything it can to ensure that young people are able to, in the future, compete on the world stage with the skills, confidence and flair to generate new ideas, new initiatives and thereby make a full contribution to tomorrow's world.
We have a clear vision for the Academy and believe very much in developing each and every one of our students so that they can achieve their true potential. We provide the opportunities for success; we develop in our students the skills that they will need in the future; we help them develop as individuals but emphasise their place within the community, helping them to think about and care for others; we guide our students to enable them to become independent learners and good team members.
Part of our success has to be attributed to the fact that we place great emphasis upon the positive relationships we have with the parents/carers of our students. We truly believe in developing a positive and genuine partnership between home and school to ensure that together we can maximize the life chances available to our students; to ensure that they are ‘challenged to achieve!’
We very much hope that if you decide to join our community here at Felixstowe Academy you will see all of this in action! Our students are bright, articulate young people and they will be only too willing to invite you in and show you around their school.
