Our Journey

MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL

Brayton Academy is a fully inclusive secondary school offering places to boys and girls aged 11 to 16 years of age. In becoming part of the Rodillian Multi-Academy Trust we will be committed to providing private school opportunities in a modern comprehensive environment. We are a school where traditional values of discipline, behaviour and respect are sacrosanct allied with the most innovative, differentiated and state of the art curriculum available.

We look to raise educational achievement to the highest standards keeping up to date with the latest strategies in education. Working in partnership with one of the country’s leading academies we are in the vanguard of school improvement.

We aim to ensure that the students reap the rewards, driven by a core purpose of high expectations on student learning, well-being and achievement.

It is my belief that by becoming part of the Rodillian Trust, the students of Brayton Academy will have the opportunities to attain outcomes and undertake experiences that will be the foundation of their successful future lives through the mutual advantages of being a part of a local, focused academy group.

OUR ETHOS AND VALUES

We strongly believe that any student can achieve in our academy.

We have high expectations of our students and staff to deliver the highest standards. Teachers are encouraged to be imaginative and creative in the classroom in order to create motivational and inspiring lessons.

Our curriculum instils resilience in our students from the moment they enter the school. Encompassed within this innovative curriculum is our belief in a growth mindset.  We believe that intelligence is far from fixed or inherited and it is an area in which we can all improve if we work hard and learn from our mistakes.

We encourage our students to experiment and take risks in their learning; to establish an environment where intelligent failure is just the start on the road to success.

We have a duty to prepare our students for the extensive examinations that they now face in the current education system. Our academies start this early in Year 7 with a structured assessment and examination calendar. We will give our students the skills and examination techniques required to succeed.
