Message from the Principal
I am delighted to be able to welcome you to The Highcrest Academy. We are a vibrant, happy school in which every student is given the opportunity to develop their talents and to flourish as individuals. Your child’s education is as important to us as it is to you and we are relentless in our pursuit of building a cohesive culture and curriculum that matches the varied needs of our students.
Our motto, ‘Aspire and Achieve’ is central to our philosophy. We are committed to making sure that every student makes outstanding progress and succeeds both academically and in terms of their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Indeed, we value a strong work ethic and aim to develop, sometimes hidden or unsuspected talent, into fruition.
Here at Highcrest, we are committed to setting high expectations for the conduct of our pupils and believe it is crucial for there to be an established culture in which all are able to excel. We want all the children who come to the academy to enjoy their learning and to become thoughtful, articulate, confident and responsible members of society.
Our personalised curriculum is enhanced by numerous extra-curricular opportunities, community and business projects, national and international competitions and a thriving House System. This encourages staff and students of all ages to work together.
Our website will give you a brief insight into our ethos and our work. I
would, however, encourage you to arrange a visit so you can see for yourself what makes The Highcrest Academy so special.
The Highcrest Academy is fully committed to safeguarding children (policies on web) and all visitors agree to our safeguarding policies - click here for our Safeguarding Policy.
