Welcome Message

Welcome to the Secondary Department of the website!  

Dear Parents and Visitors,

Welcome to the Secondary Department of The English Academy.  In secondary we follow Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 of the National Curriculum of England, culminating in Cambridge International Examinations at IGCSE and Edexcel examinations at Advanced Level. We aspire to high academic standards and take great pride in the exam results we have achieved in recent years.

At The English Academy we aim to create a stimulating learning environment where students can ask questions, investigate for themselves, work collaboratively with their peers and take a leading role in their own learning, acquiring the skills to become independent learners.   The school has introduced Chromebooks, which teachers and students use inside and outside of the classroom to enhance teaching and learning.  Through the use of Google technology, students have access to limitless resources, which they can use to further enhance independent  learning.

Beyond the classroom, we have a range of extracurricular activities which cater for the interests, talents and abilities of all our students.  We believe that students who are involved in  extracurricular activities acquire skills which allow them to be successful both socially and academically.  Through these activities students learn time management, have a sense of commitment, obtain responsibility and develop many more new and useful skills.  

Visitors to the school usually comment on the polite and friendly welcome they receive from the students and this is in keeping with the caring social values and good discipline that we strive to promote. Our pastoral system is very good, students and teachers show respect to one another.  We have high expectations of our students, where we expect them to be honest and well-mannered at all times.  

If you are interested in learning more about TEA, you are most welcome to pay us a visit and see the school for yourself. The best time to come is during a normal working day when you can tour the site, and see the school in action.

 

Sincerely,

Mrs Heidi Mohamed

Head of Secondary
