Padgate Academy

Padgate Academy is a mixed school for students aged 11-16 and is a member of TCAT - The Challenge Academies Trust.

We provide the highest quality education to young people and our aims at Padgate Academy are as those of the whole TCAT family.

Our vision for our students and staff is captured in our motto: Trust, Teamwork, Tenacity.

We can achieve this vision if we work together – across academies – drawing on the expertise within our family of schools; having learning at the heart of everything we do; and maximising on the learning opportunities available for all.

As individuals we should be striving to improve our practice; as teams we should be determined to support the development and professional growth of each other; and as academies we should be looking at ways of supporting each other to improve and grow into outstanding organisations so that pupil outcomes are the very best they can be.

Leaders, teachers, support staff, pupils, parents and governors working consistently and coherently together to improve the quality of teaching and learning have the potential to build a Trust where every child will experience outstanding teachers and every academy will have outstanding leaders.

At Padgate Academy we want all of our students to achieve well academically and we take great pains to ensure that we have an appropriately broad and balanced curriculum and pastoral structures.

The links between the pastoral care, academic achievement and enrichment opportunities are designed to enable every student to reach his or her potential. We use past student performance to establish a culture of success.
