Welcome to the Archbishop Sentamu Academy
Our aim is to bring the highest standards of education to the young people in our local area.
It is a great honour to be the Headteacher at Archbishop Sentamu Academy. I was born less than a mile away from our academy and see it as my job to ensure all students achieve the best outcomes possible.
Archie has a very strong family tradition. We offer excellent pastoral support and a structured house system to ensure our students are well cared-for. This approach extends all the way into our highly successful Sixth Form, where students are equally well-guided and supported.
Whilst we insist on rigorously high academic standards for all, we also focus on developing the whole student and promoting their well-being. We are therefore proud to run scholarship schemes in Rugby, which is becoming one of the best in the country, as well as our Spotlight Drama Scholarship programme; their performance of Ocho gained both national and international acclaim.
Be assured that I want exactly the same high standards for your children as for my own. By offering inspirational teaching and a wide range of extra-curricular activities, I strive therefore, with all my staff, to ensure that they are safe, happy and given every chance to flourish in all aspects of their lives.
I look forward to working with you all to ensure we achieve this.
