Through Christian principles, we aim to offer an education that transforms lives and communities. Everyone in our academy community deserves to be cared for unconditionally and valued equally as a unique creation, made in the image of God.
In our learning, in our work, in our relationships and in the ways in which we organise our community we are committed to valuing:
The work and person of Jesus Christ, his example and his teaching;
The equality of every young person in our academy, as being created in the image of God;
Good relationships, based on mutual respect, trust, forgiveness and a fresh start every day;
The importance of accepting the responsibility to make good choices, irrespective of the circumstances we may face;
The contribution made by families, community groups and others to the well-being, education and nurture of our students and;
The pursuit of excellence in every area of our lives, so that we can all reach our full potential.
Although a Church of England Academy, ASA is open to students of all faiths or none.
Our mission, lived out day by day, is underpinned by our core Christian values of Trust, Love and Community:

“He is proud to attend this school and we are proud he is able to be part of Team Archie.”
“I have a Year 6 going up to Archie in September. We couldn’t be happier, she’s been to the school and I know pupils who go now and I have heard nothing but great reports.”
“The staff are very open and communicative. My son was even given extra tuition by a teacher in her own time after he had been off school ill.”
“All the 6th formers I know have done amazing and thanks to Archie they are well prepared for the next chapter of their lives”
“I would like to thank everyone at Archie; teaching and support staff for helping our daughter to achieve her very best”
“The teaching and support has been outstanding over the last 7 years and I’m glad we chose
