Serving our community
Committed to high standards
Excellent education for all
It is a great privilege to serve the communities of Brayton, Selby Town and the villages directly south of the Academy.
In this time Brayton Academy has become the school of choice in the area whereby the number of students joining us in Year 7 in September 2021 was 192 compared to 74 Year 11 students leaving last summer. I consider this recognition by the community to be our greatest achievement and I attach more importance to this than the ‘well above national average’ GCSE exam results and Outstanding judgement by OFSTED.
Traditional values of discipline and respect are an essential part of our ethos at the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust, as we believe these are essential for creating a safe, harmonious and nurturing environment for both staff and students alike. In particular, we take a no-tolerance attitude towards bullying.
We aim to help every single student who comes through a Rodillian Multi Academy Trust school develop the skills they need to transition into the wider world as confident, capable and resilient young adults.
In Year 8 our students study History, Geography, Religious Studies and Media Studies through the vehicle of Contextual Curriculum. Every year we assess what are the current, domestic and global issues and we study them through the lens of these subjects.
