Welcome to Huntingdon Academy.

Every day I feel a great sense of pride in the children and their achievements. Our children are happy at school and enjoy learning. They have excellent attitudes to work, behave well and care for one another.

We take a holistic approach to the education of our children and during their time with us they make excellent academic progress. But the outcomes we achieve are much more far reaching than this; we also place great emphasis on developing the whole child through focusing on language, good manners, honesty, showing respect, cooperation and collaboration, taking responsibility for themselves and others, doing the right thing, being kind and generally being good people and outstanding citizens. It’s wonderful to see them flourishing and thriving during their time at school.

We have a highly skilled and cohesive staff team who always put our children first and strive for excellence in everything they do. We have a positive, ‘can do’ attitude and adopt a solution-focused approach to overcome obstacles and enable all children and adults to achieve their full potential. We encourage children to be confident, independent learners who understand that achieving success requires effort, practice and perseverance and that making mistakes is an essential part of the learning process.

As a school, we are outward looking and forward thinking and always looking for ways to improve through training, learning from best practice, partnership working and effective coaching. This has led to several recent successes such as achieving Investors in People: Platinum and becoming a Voice 21 Oracy Hub School.

Our focus is on meeting the individual needs of every child to ensure they develop the skills they need to reach their full potential and be ready for next phase of their academic journey. We encourage parents / carers to be involved in their children’s learning as much as possible, and to work in partnership with us for the benefit of their children.

The best way to really appreciate what Huntingdon Academy has to offer is to arrange a visit to see our school in action and meet our wonderful children and staff.

We look forward to you joining us on our continuing journey.
