About Acle Academy

We are dedicated to creating a culture which helps prepare students not just for exam results, but for lifelong learning. To thrive in the 21st century, it is not enough to leave school with a clutch of examination certificates. Students need to have learnt how to be tenacious and resourceful, imaginative and logical, self-disciplined and self-aware, collaborative and inquisitive. 

At Acle Academy, we believe that the core purpose of education is to prepare young people for life after school; helping them to build up the mental, emotional, social and strategic resources to enjoy challenge and cope well with uncertainty and complexity. We believe that this purpose for education is valuable for all young people and involves helping them to discover the things that they would really love to be great at, and strengthening their will and skill to pursue them. We also believe that confidence, capability and passion can be developed in all students irrespective of their starting points.  Real world intelligence is not something we are born with, we can all develop the skills needed to succeed with the right mind set. At Acle Academy we will inspire every young person and nurture their potential in order to develop the leaders of tomorrow.

Our curriculum is regularly reviewed and we aim to be innovative and supportive of our learners, particularly those with additional needs and we are proud of our strong international and community partnerships.

The staff offer a generous extra-curricular programme built on strong partnerships and collaboration with a range of providers and organisations. We have a rich and varied calendar of sport, science and arts based activities and an interesting range of lectures, courses and workshops for adults.

Student participation and leadership are vital to the health of the school. We need students to be active contributors and we have lively Year Councils and a Student Council led by our senior prefects.

Engaging parents and carers and keeping them informed of student progress is vital if we are to give consistent messages to young people about our values and raising aspirations. Our regular newsletter ‘High Notes’ provides an interesting survey of everything that is happening in our busy school community.
