Head of SCHOOL's Welcome
Welcome to the Jubilee Academy.
I am honoured to be charged with the task of delivering high-quality education to our students in a safe, structured and stimulating environment. As you read through the pages of this site, you will learn about our wonderful students, our school, and get a feel for the vibrancy and strength of our school community.
The Jubilee Academy is a very well led, nurturing alternative provision. We aim to give every student in our care the very best possible education in order to prepare them for life beyond school. We are a ‘Learning Community’ which encourages staff, students, and parents to be involved in all aspects of the school life and to identify themselves with the core values of the school.

Dr Michael Jarrett
Our educational program is broad and balanced and our record of success is outstanding thus far. Our vision of education extends far beyond the classroom. We expect high standards in all that we do at the Jubilee Academy. We encourage our students to aim high in their studies, to work hard and to be sensitive to the rights and needs of others. Of course, this website cannot take the place of visiting our School; I warmly welcome you to visit our school by contacting us, and discover for yourself what makes the Jubilee Academy an outstanding alternative provision.

Our Vision, Ethos and Values
The Jubilee Academy offers a smaller-school experience and a more personalised curriculum than is possible in a mainstream high school. We recognise that for a small number of students there is a need to provide a different experience of learning to unlock their abilities.
The Jubilee Academy’s vision is to ensure that every student fulfils their promise, develops their potential and reaches or exceeds age related expectations. Our students will leave us being fully equipped and prepared to grasp every future opportunity in their lives.
The Governing Body are ambitious for the school and intend to ensure that every young person is as aspirational for their own future as we are. Each dimension of school life and aspect of the curriculum, together with its supporting organisational structures and systems, is designed to secure this vision.
Our staff and governors know that how we feel affects how we learn and hold this as central to the school ethos. Our approach is characterised by a deep desire to offer new opportunities to students who may have experienced previous difficulties. In doing so, we believe in, and expect the very best of, ourselves, the young people and their families. This is manifested in the achievement of quality standards in curriculum design and implementation - both within and beyond the classroom - and in the exceptional outcomes in students’ academic and personal learning.
The Jubilee Academy values high standards, maximum effort and full commitment to learning and progress. We prize a welcoming, cheerful, caring, safe and disciplined environment where learning can be outstanding for everyone. These values are demonstrated through a ‘tough caring’ approach characterised by high expectations of all members of the school community. Strong pastoral provision, high quality teaching and continuing professional development (CPD) for our staff will ensure that students are held into the pace of learning to make accelerated progress.
With our partners and networks, the school aspires to achieve more than was ever thought possible for, and with, its community.
