Welcome – Secondary

Welcome to the Archbishop Lanfranc Academy

Our mission is to ensure that all learners in our community benefit from the opportunities available to them in order to achieve the greatest possible success in their time with us. Our motto, Learning Changes Lives, reinforces our core belief in the value of education to positively transform people and society. 

We are committed to promoting resilience and positive wellbeing for all our students and staff.  We understand wellbeing is a state of being comfortable, healthy and happy.  We will drive the message forward, to ensure that mental health is “everyone’s business” across the whole school community.  We will strive to create an environment that has a whole school approach, in providing excellent mental health support, understanding and intervention.

Students and staff benefit from brand new, state of the art, facilities, purpose built and officially opened in July 2018. In addition to the main teaching building the Academy has a Sports’ Centre comprising a four-court sports hall, dance studio and fitness suite. Outside space includes an all-weather 3G pitch and extensive playing fields.

Our curriculum model has been designed to encourage the development of confident, independent, learners with the skills and comprehension necessary to succeed in an increasingly competitive world. In conjunction with the extensive enrichment opportunities provided by the Academy our students are able to grow in maturity and understanding.

I very much look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you to the Academy in person.
