Mission, Vision & Values
At the core of our Academy’s actions is our central mission: ‘Working together to inspire excellence, guided by Christian Values’. It is through this mission that the community live our Core Values of Respect, Courage and Ambition. By serving each other through love we show respect to our neighbour, courage to be the best version of ourselves, ambition to help all those who come into our lives and hope to make the world a better place through our actions.
The personal and character development of our students is central to how we nurture and support our community. We are very proud of the Hope Inspire Programme which is delivered daily during form time and is underpinned by our core values. During this 5-year learning programme, students regularly engage in critical discussions and activities which explore our Christian Ethos, as well as addressing statutory requirements linked to Personal Health and Social Education (PHSE); Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC); and Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG). The Inspire Programme is designed to prepare students to graduate from Hope Academy as young independent learners who are secure in their place in the world, who know themselves and their ambitions for the future and how to achieve them.
Hope Academy is a family, guided by Christian love, in which we serve our whole community with empathy and compassion, helping every member to flourish so all can pursue a rich and full life.
