School Description

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Mascalls Academy community. As a successful and popular academy, we provide our students with the opportunities within the classroom and beyond to develop into young people who will contribute positively to our local, national and global communities.

At Mascalls Academy, we offer an incredibly wide curriculum, there are twenty seven different subjects being taught at GCSE level and twenty nine subjects at A level. We are also proud to be an International Baccalaureate World School offering the Middle Years Programme in Years 7-9 which is designed to develop happy, inquisitive, rounded, independent, globally aware and resilient young people. Our co-curriculum offers an incredible eighteen lunchtime clubs and twenty one after school clubs alongside teams in football, netball, rugby, volleyball and many more.

We achieve academic excellence and promote the Arts, our Creative Arts National Area of Excellence develops the skills and confidence our students need to succeed through visual art, dance, drama and music. There really is an opportunity for everyone to be happy and succeed here and that underpins the very core of our purpose.

Whilst our academy is large, we support our students by breaking it down into smaller schools, known as colleges. Each college is roughly the size of the average primary school and is headed by a large and dedicated leadership team devoted to the academic and pastoral care of the students within it. We prioritise mental health and well being alongside academic achievement through our on-site provision of Place2be, offering full time individual and group therapy sessions for those who need it. In partnership with parents we work closely through the seven-year journey from the very first day to the confident, knowledgeable and disciplined individuals leaving our academy as young adults.

We have incredibly high expectations of behaviour. Our students are happy, they are polite and show respect. Our behaviour systems promote a discipline within our students that prepares them fully for the world beyond the academy. As an academy, as a community we achieve academic excellence, develop strength of individual character supported by our culture of aspiration and celebrating success. Our rewards system recognises the success of our students through achievement points, Golden Tickets, half colours and full colours. Achievement and progress are rewarded within every lesson.

What underpins all that we do is that we truly care, Mascalls Academy really is a community in the truest sense. Developing successful and happy young people requires a team, and strong and supportive communication between all members of our community is essential to ensure this. Our students are balanced and compassionate young people who care for one another and have pride in what we all achieve each and every day.

Thank you for reading and I hope we will be welcoming you to the Mascalls Academy community in the future.- Principal Jo Brooks
