Headteacher's Comments

Welcome to our school.

We believe in the value of teamwork and work hard with our parents and carers to ensure our children  achieve good results.. Our aim is to provide an excellent education for young people and instil a lifelong love of learning. We do this with humility and in the name of our founder Baba Amar Singh Ji.

Our school has developed from a low base line to what it is today, a school generally achieving above local and national standards. The success of the school has been recognised through OfSTED as a good school with several outstanding aspects.  

The academy is hard-working, orderly, friendly and takes a pride in it’s achievements. All pupils wear uniform and are encouraged to show courtesy and respect for others – themes that are central to the school ethos. Many of our visitors comment warmly about the friendliness of the school and the good relationships between pupils. Another comment regularly made to us concerns the purposeful nature of the work taking place in all the classrooms and around the school.

Throughout the academy there is an emphasis on the development of personal qualities, on the widening of pupils’ horizons, and on preparation for a purposeful and caring role in society. The school ensures that pupils learn their mother tongue and are aware of the principles of Sikhism. More importantly they are encouraged to act within these principles which include:

  • daily prayers

  • showing respect for adults

  • showing respect for other religions

  • caring for the elderly and the underprivileged

  • showing humility

The academy is always receptive to new ideas and is constantly exploring ways of raising the existing high level of achievement. However, we do not respond to novelty for its own sake and believe in looking at new proposals in the light of their practicality and relevance to our unique role as a Sikh academy. This prospectus aims to give some insight into the organisation of the academy. However, there is no substitute for a visit to the academy itself and parents are invited to visit us on Open Evenings, or any other time by arrangement.
