Welcome to Firth Park Academy.
Our aim is ‘to make our best better’.
At Firth Park Academy we are dedicated to raising the aspirations and achievement of all students in our community and are proud that the progress of our current students is better than ever before.
We value our students above all else; challenging them to build strength of character through respect, resilience, responsibility and aspiration.
Students are at the heart of all we do here at Firth Park Academy. We aim to celebrate their success and develop them into leaders through our school wide student leadership programme. We have an election programme to appoint our Head Boy and Girl and Prefects. We have a reward programme focussed on recognising students who demonstrate a good attitude to learning all day, every day through status as Gold and Silver lead learners. We also have an Ambassadors programme which allows our students to learn alongside and on location with leaders in the Manufacturing industry, NHS and Performing Arts. We are equally committed to the professional development of our teachers knowing that the stronger our teachers, the stronger our learners.
In a recent DfE visit our students shared that “they are proud of their academy and their teachers”. We are proud of their success.
Learning Ahead of All. Strength in Diversity. An Open Doors Academy.
We are proud too of the strength of diversity in our Academy, taking every opportunity to celebrate the many languages and home countries brought together in one Academy. Every student, of every background is welcome in our Academy and will be given the highest levels of challenge and support to succeed. We are a school who put learning ahead of all in order to make our best better and give our students the best possible future.
