Vision and Values
Berkeley Academy provides all students with a broad, balanced and dynamic curriculum. The aims of the school go beyond the academic to include the education of citizens for tomorrow with a clear focus of mutual respect and tolerance.
- EXCELLENCE IN ALL AREAS
Relationships between pupils and their teachers are excellent. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding. Pupils are full of enthusiasm and their attitude towards learning is exceptional.
- LEADING FROM THE CUTTING EDGE
The school is committed to innovation and prides itself in being at the forefront of national and international developments. The school encourages staff to further their subject and teaching expertise through higher level university study and school based research. Working with its partners, Berkeley plays a pivotal role in leading the development of the education system so that our students and staff benefit from the most up to date opportunities, educational practice and new learning technologies.
- A TEACHING SCHOOL
Berkeley Academy is part of the Teaching Schools Alliance led by Cranford Community College, a designated “Teaching School”. We only recruit outstanding teachers and those that show the potential to be so. We provide an extensive training programme for all staff to ensure that they remain highly skilled, well-motivated and highly qualified. Berkeley's teachers lead outstanding learning which translates into outstanding student progress and outcomes.
- TRANSFORMING A COMMUNITY
The school has a mission of ‘Transforming the Community’. Berkeley is thoroughly integrated within the local community and is focused on driving improvement within and beyond our local area. The school ensures that the young people of Berkeley and its surrounding areas achieve as highly as possibly in every educational and social field.
- A TRULY REMARKABLE PLACE
The wide range of extra-curricular clubs and amazing opportunities help develop students wider education and create a real passion for learning and love of what students study.
