South Axholme Academy
South Axholme School was established in 1961. Since then the school has been extended and is currently able to cater for approximately 930 students. In 2012 South Axholme Community School converted to South Axholme Academy. In the summer of 2013, South Axholme Academy became the lead in a small multi academy trust, Isle Education Trust. Isle Education Trust now comprises South Axholme Academy, Epworth Primary Academy and Coritani Academy. In September 2015, the Academy opened its Sixth Form, offering education to students from 11 to 18 for the first time in its history.
It is a real pleasure, as the Principal of South Axholme Academy, to welcome you to our Academy. We never forget that parents entrust us with one of the most important and rewarding jobs in the world; the education of their child. For us, that means finding the means to unlock the potential within every student in ways that ultimately make them happy, confident and competent young adults. We embrace diversity and no matter what the starting point we are committed to providing the best for every child. At our Academy every child really does matter.
The Academy has an excellent reputation locally and further afield, for the achievements of its students whether academic, vocational, sporting or cultural. Students also benefit from an outstanding programme of extra-curricular activities that caters for all interests and abilities.
Our students are taught by a highly qualified, exceptionally committed team, of staff all of whom recognise the importance of creative and exciting teaching that creates a positive learning environment. We have high expectations of behaviour for all students to foster a climate where learning can thrive. This, coupled with a strong system of care, supports all students so that they are able to do their best whilst building confidence and self- esteem.
We are exceptionally proud of the students at South Axholme Academy who continue to excel in all areas. We believe passionately that Academy life should be a truly memorable experience supporting and enabling students to go on and have rewarding and successful lives.
In choosing a school to trust with your child’s secondary education, I know you are faced with a particularly important decision. I hope that our website gives you a flavour of our Academy, our values and priorities. The very best way to understand who we are and what we believe in is to come and visit us. If you would like to do this, or have any questions, please get in touch; we look forward to meeting you.
