Welcome to Ansford Academy, where education is about everyone achieving his or her best, while developing individual character and personality. We are a mixed comprehensive school consisting of 600 students.
Our motto, learning together to lead our lives, reflects our passionate belief in equipping individuals with the skills to make a success of their lives - to secure useful and rewarding work, make and sustain good relationships and contribute positively to local and global communities.
In our fast-moving and challenging world, a strong portfolio of qualifications opens doors and increases opportunities but does not guarantee success. Our focus at Ansford Academy - for students, teachers, associate staff and families - is on learning how to be the best we can be.
We seek to achieve this through a constant desire for growth in three key areas:
Unlocking potential and securing futures
Laying the foundations for lifelong learning
Forming and maintaining quality relationships
We take seriously the responsibilities of working together as a community, striving for excellence in all we do and ensuring that all of us are valued for who we are and who we can become. Through high academic and personal expectations, we inspire our students to enjoy their time here and ensure that they leave fully prepared for the next phase of their lives.
Through high expectations, a wide range of opportunities and a strong community ethos, we have created an academy that enables our students to be themselves and to thrive.
Ansford is a unique academy with so much to celebrate and we urge you to arrange a visit so that you can experience for yourself all that we can offer. We very much look forward to meeting you.
