I would like to extend a warm welcome to Strood Academy, a successful, thriving and vibrant learning community for 11-19 year olds. We are extremely proud of our staff and students and have a strong belief that all students deserve a world class education, which we continue to offer as their local community school.

We deliver innovative teaching and learning through our broad, balanced and inclusive curriculum allowing our students to experience a rich variety of subjects. Our curriculum and lessons are sequenced to enable our students to build on their prior knowledge and further develop their understanding in order for them to achieve the highest outcomes regardless of their starting point.

Our staff are dedicated to providing an outstanding learning environment where students are challenged and stretched to achieve their personal best. Our enrichment programme and curriculum are designed to support the development of our students into well rounded individuals who engage as positive citizens within their communities as well as becoming lifelong learners.

Students are encouraged and supported to flourish through a culture of high-expectations, aspirations and traditional values. We have a warm but strict approach and expect our students to uphold the highest standards in terms of attitude to learning, behaviour, attendance and appearance.

We have a small school structure within our academy where students are placed into one of three colleges. This allows our highly skilled staff to provide outstanding pastoral support, nurturing them academically, socially and spiritually in a much smaller environment. Our building in Carnation Road provides outstanding facilities and inspirational opportunities for young people to thrive and develop. Strood Academy is part of Leigh Academies Trust and together with our skilled Governing Body we are committed to providing educational experiences that enable our students to reach their full potential. We know that young people achieve their best in a supportive, caring environment and a strong home/school partnership is an essential part in helping to develop our students into successful individuals.

We look forward to welcoming you into our community as we journey towards success together.
