Welcome From the Headteacher
I am delighted to welcome you to the Abbs Cross Academy website.
Abbs Cross Academy is recognised by Ofsted as a ‘good’ school. This is due to the hard work and commitment of our staff and the perseverance and positivity of our pupils. We are, however, not satisfied with good, and continue to develop a culture of aspiration and high expectations in order to make our school the best it can be.
We believe in developing our students so that they are able to achieve their potential both academically and as members of our community. We work on the traditional values of respect, discipline and responsibility to prepare our students for the challenges of examinations, social interactions and the world of work. We want all of our students to find their passion and have the tools to pursue their dreams.
As part of the Loxford School Trust, we are able to work within a hub of schools, led by Loxford School,
an Outstanding school, thus ensuring that our staff are able to deliver the highest educational standards. This enables us to stay ahead of an ever-evolving education system and a constantly changing society.
We have a strong pastoral system and curriculum to allow us to ensure that our students are happy, safe and challenged in all they do at school. Abbs Cross is an inclusive school and we pride ourselves on the fact that we are a family and that no child is left behind. We work closely with our parents and our community in order to achieve the best for all in our school.
We aim to:
- Achieve exam success for all – we want our pupils to have as many choices as possible, with a strong foundation of GCSEs
- Ensure that every child leaves our school knowing themselves as an individual, as a member
of a team and as a citizen
- Create a culture of learning for life
- Provide the skills needed for self-management, resilience and self-worth
- Give opportunities and experiences outside of the classroom to enrich our pupils
We believe that every student has the potential to achieve greatness and will work with every student to ensure that they get there. Our school is committed to the success of each of our pupils. Our website should answer many of your queries but we always welcome visitors to our school.
