What the school says...
We are proud to introduce you to The Petchey Academy: inspiring and supporting every child. Please visit our website which will give you a flavour of our vibrant and engaging learning community.
The Petchey Academys Latin motto is Excelsior which succinctly captures our ambition for academic excellence in an environment where students are encouraged to develop their interests and talents in all areas. We strongly believe that the students are proud of their academy and value its unique character. Our sponsor, Jack Petchey CBE, gives us that distinctive character. Both students and staff follow his maxim, If I think I can, I can which proves an apt guide for anyone striving for excellence in their studies, extra-curricular activities and working relationships.
Students have a clear set of moral values and a sense of responsibility towards the academy. Expectations of commitment to study, social responsibility and respect are encapsulated in our Petchey Way. When you visit, please ask any student what the Petchey Way means to them. Answers will range from wearing smart uniform and holding doors open for people, to working hard for the highest qualifications and successfully winning a place at a top university.
The academy is here to nurture and stimulate our students whatever their interests and ambitions. Whether they are fascinated by higher maths, music or politics, we encourage and support them to pursue their ambitions. If they are inspired by medical science, The Petchey Academy is the place for them. Our links and partnerships with teaching hospitals and universities, coupled with our Clinical Skills Lab create a stimulating environment to explore the possibilities.
There is no better way to find out about our unique academy that to come and visit us. Members of our Student Leadership Team will be happy to discuss with you what makes The Petchey Academy such a special place. ...Read more
