North Shore Academy

Outcomes Focused, Child Centred


Focusing on English and Maths

English and Maths are at the heart of success in learning. We place great emphasis on them and provide additional support to students when they need it. This includes encouraging reading. We want students to be enthusiastic readers as a springboard to achievement in the curriculum but also as a source of pleasure.

Supporting Each Student's Learning

The curriculum will have different learning blocks which will be tailored ensuring each student has a work programme which engages them and sets goals which they know they can achieve.We will track and monitor each students progress to make sure they are doing their best so that we can provide any additional support that is needed.

Effective and Exciting Lessons

We are aiming to make lessons outstanding. Teachers will plan and prepare effectively and make lessons as exciting as possible using the very best practice.

There will be opportunities through the design of our new building, to model excellent teaching and learning and show how students can be actively involved in their own learning.
