I am extremely proud to be leading Havant Academy at this exciting time in its development.
We are delighted by the tremendous achievement by the Class of 2016, they achieved a stunning Progress 8 score of 0.13 which places us in 4th place nationally compared to similar and like schools. Truly amazing!
In my role as Principal I will strive to create the high performing and outstanding Academy that this local community both needs and deserves.
At Havant Academy we have high expectations of all our students and believe in rigorously and consistently enforcing traditional basic standards of uniform, presentation and respect. This, in turn, ensures we create a positive climate for learning in which every student can reach their full potential. Our Academy is a calm, orderly and purposeful environment where pupils enjoy their learning, make good progress and feel safe.
I also have high expectations of the staff who work at Havant Academy. My staff, irrespective of their role, lead by example and act as positive role models for our students. Further, our curricular and support teams are determined to deliver the highest quality teaching and learning experience where the needs of all our students are effectively met.
The Senior Leadership Team has a high presence in the Academy. Every day they visit lessons to support both staff and students to ensure that basic standards are being met and the quality of teaching and learning is consistently high. Staff are provided with high quality professional development which has a sharp focus on outstanding teaching and learning so that our students receive the best.
Our future success is based on an effective partnership between students, staff and parents. I will always aim to build positive, trusting and long lasting relationships to support our students to be confident and highly successful.
I look forward to working with you.
