Inspiring and supporting every child


    Welcome to The Petchey Academy

    We are committed to developing young people who can take their place competitively, in all walks of life, as rounded, mature and confident members of modern British society.

    We place great emphasis on giving our students the ability to consider and make choices in life, rather than following the crowd. Each student is expected to strive for the highest level of individual success in their chosen path.

    • We are very happy with the academy. Staff are very friendly and the academy sets a high standard which the students represent. It feels like a very well run school where the children work hard and they have effective systems for discipline

    • The academy’s work to keep students safe is exemplary. The well-being of students, including provision for their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, is paramount to their learning.
