Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to our brilliant, dynamic Academy, sponsored by both the Church of England and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Since becoming Principal in September 2020, I have ensured that all our students continue to flourish and excel through strong educational provision and unparalleled pastoral care.Our results this summer at both A Level and GCSE are testimony to a real focus on excellent teaching and learning and on preparing our students to be successful in their next steps. The 2023 GCSE results were the best the Academy has ever achieved and we were delighted that Ofsted judged us to be strongly good in all areas at our recent inspection in September.

Our Vision

‘Learning together to flourish’, is lived out every day; a vision informed by our Christian values. We believe in educating the whole child and our Christian values of joy, perseverance, servant leadership, charity and forgiveness underpin everything we stand for.
