7 LEA Core Values

At the centre of Academy life are 7 LEA Core Values, promoting: Excellence, Punctuality, Ambition, Confidence, Resilience, Positivity and Respect. The 7 LEA Core Values underpin everything we do on a daily basis, ensuring that all students and staff know the role that they have to play in both our school and wider community as a whole.

The 7 LEA Core Values are:


Excellence – we aim to deliver the very best in everything we do, every day.
Punctuality– we have excellent attendance and arrive on time, in the correct uniform and ready to learn every day.
Ambition – we are hardworking and ambitious for ourselves and other in our community.
Confidence – we believe in ourselves and know our strengths.
Resilience – we know that failure is not a sign of weakness and success is found in learning from our mistakes.
Positivity – we are positive thinkers and encourage each other to be the best that we can be.
Respect – we are well behaved and value the opinions of others. We are considerate to all within our learning community.
