As well as providing exceptional support for those children

facing a variety of challenges through their school life, the

Academy also has a growing reputation for its innovative and

inspiring programme for exceptionally able students. ‘The Edge

Academy’ is a curriculum enrichment programme which inspires

our students to aim high towards applying for places at Russell

Group Universities, adding to the impressive tally of students

graduating from prestigious universities over recent years.

The Edge Academy encourages students to partake in

independent study programmes led by each department,

mentored by members of staff and including excursions

usually only accessible to the independent sector. Each

year’s programme of work culminates in an award ceremony,

reminding students that competition for places is a reality

they will manage in their futures.

“Joining the

‘Edge Academy’

has given me lots

of opportunities.”
