I am delighted to introduce you to Mascalls Academy. We are a mixed comprehensive academy that provides an excellent all-round education in a friendly and supportive environment.
We are a dynamic, forward thinking academy which aims to prepare students for the challenges they will face after school and enable them to acquire life skills, self-awareness and compassion. We want our students to not only make the most of their abilities, but also to become adults who can make a valuable contribution to society over the course of their adult lives. We celebrate each individual student and aim to ensure that they leave the academy as confident young adults who have high self-esteem and are prepared for the next stage in their lives. Our staff are extraordinarily hard-working and go beyond the call of duty to help each student reach their full potential.
We are also proud of the pastoral care we provide for our students. We value them as individuals and do everything in our power to make their time here as happy as possible and to help them cope with the ups and downs of different stages of life through to adulthood. We have very positive relationships with our students’ parents and believe very strongly that by working closely with them, we can support their children most effectively.
Please make an appointment to visit us during the day and we would be delighted to show you around so that you can see students and staff at work.
The school leaders have demonstrated their strong capacity to bring about sustained improvement through effective self-evaluation processes and this has been acknowledged by parents, carers and students. One parent referred to the school as a ‘shining light amongst local schools’.
Through engaging with businesses and further education college partners, the school is developing personalised pathways for vocational courses and apprenticeships, which are greatly valued by students.
Students overwhelmingly say that they feel safe in school and that any bullying, name-calling or teasing is immediately dealt with.
