Principal’s Introduction

I am delighted to introduce myself as Principal at one of the most exciting points in the recent history of the Academy. As you may be aware the Academy was inspected by Ofsted in September 2017 and judged to be ‘Good’ in all areas. Since that point we have been committed to becoming an outstanding provider for children in Market Harborough and the surrounding community. Student progress and attainment this year will reflect the best results that the Academy has produced since the reform of GCSE and A-Level subjects with over 250 grades at A*/A (9-7) and an average overall grade at B (6) alongside A-Level progression to student destinations of choice including Oxford, Cambridge and Russell Group universities. Having said that, what matters most is today and tomorrow. I will never be complacent with historical reports or results. My passion and our focus is for the students that we will be working with from August 2019 and for the forthcoming academic year so that we can give each individual a broad, rich and high quality education.

It is a fantastic feature that students who join us will be able to grow in a setting that offers the potential for building relationships from the age of 11 through to 19 years of age. This will allow them to build positive relationships, gain confidence and to take advantage of opportunities both in and beyond the classroom. I have a firm belief that students need a structured environment permeated with positive feedback so that they achieve their best. Students who join us can expect to experience passion, belief and clarity from day one.

My experience of teaching has informed my view that making a positive start is important for building momentum, forming habits and creating a positive feedback loop. We know that all students will need support as they adjust to their first weeks of Academy life and they will benefit from attending a warm, family environment where all stakeholders display kindness, compassion and support one another. Be prepared, be kind, work hard is a neat reflection of our culture.

The hopes and dreams of students who join our Academy matter to me. I believed so strongly in my vision for a culture of excellence that I moved my life and family to Market Harborough. Every day my experience of working with students, staff and parents reinforces my conviction that there is something really special happening at this Academy. My aspirations for students are limitless and this is an exciting time to join us as we continue to grow into a centre of excellence for the East Midlands.

Dan Cleary, Principal
