As the new Executive Headteacher of The Petchey Academy, I would like to extend all visitors a warm welcome.
You will find our school to be an orderly, supportive, and inclusive learning environment which allows students to thrive academically.
I passionately believe that the right education has the transformative capacity to change lives, lift communities, and create a culture where young people can be ambitious for their futures.
As a school leader, I have a proven track record of raising standards, not just through public examinations but also by raising expectations of what can be achieved.
I want our students to be setting their sights on the top universities and the most sought-after professions. They will leave this school ready to meet the twenty-first century's challenges and make their mark on the world as lawyers, doctors, scientists, and engineers.
At this school, we challenge our students to believe anything they wish to achieve is within their grasp, so long as they are prepared for hard work.
I feel the burden of great responsibility to make sure every child that leaves this school is ready for the next stage of their lives. Under my leadership, our students feel valued and respected, and they will also be challenged academically to fulfil their potential. We leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of excellence.
I hope to see you all soon at a parents' evening or open evening.
Mr O Deria
