Greenacre Academy aims to deliver a curriculum that enables all students to enjoy and study a broad and balanced range of subjects and topics, that are both challenging and inspiring. It will give students the opportunity to make progress and be educationally mobile for them to succeed, academically and culturally, beyond secondary school. We aim for our curriculum to be:

Knowledge-rich – Specific and sequenced information imparted to students.
Sustainable – Students are able to retain and maintain knowledge over time.
Aspirational – inspiring students to move beyond the norm.

The Skills for Life mission statement is also at the centre of everything we do in our aim to deliver a curriculum which builds maturity and independence in our students, enabling them to take up suitable and satisfying occupations and activities, leading to them making a positive contribution to the community. We aim to prepare our young pupils to be the adults that they are to become, by encouraging them to reach their full potential academically through high quality teaching of a curriculum including life skills. Additionally, we aim to introduce all pupils to a wide range of potential careers and mentors from the business world both locally and regionally so that they are fully prepared for the world of work when that time arrives.

Our SKILLS FOR LIFE vision is woven through the curriculum in all subjects and we use the values daily throughout our teaching, and learning.
