Welcome from the Principal

I am very proud to welcome you to Padgate Academy.  Our Academy is a mixed school for students aged 11-16 and is a member of TCAT – The Challenge Academy Trust.

We provide the highest quality education to young people and our aims at Padgate Academy are as those of the whole TCAT family, where we develop and maintain a culture that promotes our values of Trust, Tenacity & Teamwork. 

At Padgate Academy we want all of our students to achieve well academically and we take great pains to ensure that we have an appropriately broad and balanced curriculum and pastoral structures.

The links between the pastoral care, academic achievement and enrichment opportunities are designed to enable every student to reach his or her potential. We use past student performance to establish a culture of success.

I extend a personal invitation to you, to visit us to meet with both the staff and students, who will demonstrate the outstanding education Padgate Academy has to offer to your children.
