Here at Chase Terrace Academy, we work together to ‘ignite’ the aspiration of all members of our community, encouraging and supporting them to achieve more than they had thought possible.
The Governing Body and staff team work in partnership with parents/carers and the local community to ensure the best possible outcomes for students. Part of the Stephen Sutton Multi-Academy Trust, the school takes its lead from the shining example of Stephen Sutton* himself. He showed us all how to make the best of our opportunities.
The school is highly focused on achieving strong academic outcomes for all students through challenge and support, resulting in excellent progression into higher education, training and employment and enhancing work and life prospects. The most able students are ‘stretched’ to achieve exceptional results. Our inclusive ethos creates a well-ordered, highly supportive and respectful learning environment, where diversity is celebrated and students are treated as individuals. Relationships across the school community are considered key.
Chase Terrace Academy has specialist staff teaching across the curriculum in purpose-built accommodation. The majority of the school is ‘new build’ (from 2004), with a large sports centre built in 2009 and a new technology / community learning block added in 2015. The school site provides a contemporary, safe and inspiring setting for learning.
The Sixth Form is an important feature of the school’s provision and our sixth formers are great role models to younger students. They make an important contribution to school life. The strong reputation of the Sixth Form is well-established and draws in students from further afield.
The school and the Trust are very strongly community-focused, including through the excellent working arrangements we have with a broad variety of local businesses and other agencies. This partnership work helps students to understand the needs of employers, putting into context what they are learning. Furthermore, it enables us to play an active role in brokering work-related training for the wider community, including through the use of the Community Hub.
