I am proud, honoured and privileged to be the Headteacher of Arena Academy.

Arena Academy is a mainstream, non-selective comprehensive school and we pride ourselves on an ethos and culture, where in ‘Our Arena’ we embrace individuality and celebrate all of our talents. At Arena, we believe in values of collaboration, opportunity, respect and excellence. Students, staff and our wider community are encouraged to build relationships to provide a safe, secure and vibrant atmosphere. Our school is a genuinely happy school, where students enjoy being here and throw themselves into the diversity of school life.

We work tirelessly with our students, with a focus on individual student progress and personal development. Every student is encouraged and supported to achieve their best possible results, knowing how important this is for their futures. Our students know we have the highest expectations of them. We insist on excellence in everything that we do. Our students deserve the best, so we appoint only the most talented and passionate teachers and support staff, who engage with our children and ensure we educate the whole child.

Everyone who walks through our door is provided with opportunities to build their confidence and self-esteem. Students are involved in all aspects of school life, especially leadership roles. We work together to expand our minds and embrace new challenges. Importantly, every member of the team matters here. We achieve excellence together and every student and staff member celebrates being part of ‘Our Arena’.
