Proud to be part of the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation, Knights is a Specialist Sports Academy offering a curriculum experience that continues and integrates from ages 3 through to 18.
We moved to a new purpose built building in 2007 which houses our Secondary Phase and have recently completed extensive remodelling of our Primary Phase. We continue to strive to provide the very best facilities for all our students and staff.
The all through Academy model which we operate is very successful in providing for a seamless transition from Year 6 to Year 7 as all primary phase children have an automatic right of entry to the secondary phase. The collaborative work at all levels among staff in both phases means that opportunities exist for excellent progression at all of the key stages.
As a Specialist Sports Academy we raise standards of achievement for all our students and use the power of PE and Sport to enhance their academic, personal and social development. We receive extra funding which allows us to provide additional accommodation, resources, coaching staff and teachers resulting in access to a very high standard of sports facilities and experiences.
Our objective is to make the curriculum accessible to all in terms of breadth, challenge, engagement and motivation, whilst being responsive to the needs of all students. Tracking and monitoring is firmly embedded across the Academy to ensure that every student is on the correct trajectory to achieve their target grades. We have high expectations and aspirations for both students and staff alike and we aim to develop new methodologies that will continue to excite and challenge all of us to achieve.
The Primary phase as well as the 6th Form is fully co-educational whilst classes in the Secondary phases are taught in largely single sex classes within a co-educational environment.
Students are expected to wear the Haberdashers’ uniform with pride and to uphold the high tradition of excellent behaviour, respect for others and politeness.
At Knights Academy we are keen to make a positive impact and greatly enhance every student’s learning experience.
