Welcome to your Academy.
Welcome to Accrington Academy Sixth Form and welcome to your Future! We have a mission statement to bring out “the best in everyone”.
As the Headteacher I believe that “learning is not a rehearsal” and as a result I expect all staff here at Accrington Academy to treat students as if they were their own. Accrington Academy is aiming to deliver an outstanding education with excellent exam results. This combined with the superb extracurricular opportunities, makes the Sixth Form come to life for our students. We believe in education with character and Accrington Academy Sixth Form has you at its heart, we will equip you with the skills required to reach your chosen destination. We’re driven by hard work and the strong belief that every student can achieve whatever they put their mind to. I’m excited by the opportunities for our students. It is a wonderful Sixth Form with passionate staff who always go the “extra mile”. Ofsted stated that the Academy creates students who are “aspirational, confident and outward looking” and commented on the “warmth and vibrancy” of the environment we have created.
Please get in contact or come and visit to see for yourselves.
