Headteacher's Welcome

Headteacher Clare BorrillThe Petchey Academy is committed to inspiring and supporting every child to be the very best that they can be. Our focus is on each child as an individual, through strong pastoral support systems complemented by a broad and holistic curriculum and high quality teaching that stretches and challenges students to think for themselves.

We believe in the importance of fostering a love of learning and stimulating curiosity through exposure to a wide range of activities and opportunities beyond the classroom. We are extremely proud of our extra-curricular clubs, our extensive sports facilities, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) programme, and long standing partnerships with Bloomberg, University College London and the Institute of Engineering.

The Latin motto on the academy crest is "Excelsior", meaning "Ever Higher". It encapsulates the aspirations we have for our students to believe in their own ability to achieve more.

The Petchey Academy is committed to inclusion of all students and we are incredibly proud of our provision for deaf and hearing impaired children.

We recommend you visit us at an open evening or on a more informal tour for a first hand opportunity to speak to our staff and students, and to see our superb facilities.

We look forward to welcoming you to our academy.
