The curriculum aims are reflected in the life of the students through their engagement with Academy as well as community initiatives.  Student Leadership within the Academy highlights the many areas in which students excel, including their many sporting achievements, involvement with fund-raising for national and local charities, publicising information about disadvantaged students, electing their own Student Leadership Team and promoting independent learning. Within the wider community our students help lead and support sports clubs and young people’s uniformed groups including RAF, Army and Sea Cadets, scouts and guides, working with younger members of the community to great effect.
