Welcome to Greensward Academy

“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today”.

Greensward Academy has a long history of academic success, pastoral care and curriculum enrichment; having served the local community for generations it is a much loved and respected institution. In this, my first year as principal, I am both committed to preserving these traditions of the past whilst at the same time ensuring that it is upon the future that we are firmly and resolutely focused.

Indeed, any visitor who takes the opportunity to tour our corridors and classrooms, talk with our staff and engage with our students will discover a school where the talents of each and every learner are nurtured. If your strength lies in academic rigour, we will challenge you. If your strength lies in sporting prowess, we will develop you. If your strength lies in creative expression, we will inspire you.

As a school, we understand the importance of instilling a sense of community into those who pass through our care whilst at the same time ensuring that, when they leave us, they are ready to shape our globalised world. With an emphasis on good manners, respect, tolerance and acceptance, Greensward Academy can be rightfully proud of its students and staff. With our new buildings and open spaces, a dynamic curriculum offering opportunity for all and a pastoral care which sees everyone as an individual, I am confident that we have the right learning environment to ensure our 21st century learners are ready to embrace the challenges of our 21st century world.
