All-through – Same school for whole career
With classes from Reception to Sixth Form, Reach Academy Feltham offers pupils the opportunity to stay at the same school for their whole school career. Once accepted, pupils have a place until they are 18 years old. Siblings are also guaranteed a place. Initially, we will have two entry points: Reception and Year 7.
The transition from primary to secondary school can be extremely difficult, sometimes affecting children’s confidence, behaviour and academic achievement. An all-through school avoids these challenges: our staff know pupils and families well and provide continuity between your child’s primary and secondary experience.
A small school – No pupil left behind
Our school is small, with only 60 pupils in each year from reception all the way to Year 13. We believe that it is impossible to teach to high standards unless the teacher knows the children, both personally and academically. By keeping the school small, we can create a community of pupils and teachers where no pupil is left behind. Teachers spend more time with each group of pupils, enabling us to create an environment in which pupils want to learn, achieve, and behave well. In a small school, we know our pupils individually, and can meet the learning needs of every child.
High Aspirations for All – The choice to go to university
Our vision is that every pupil at Reach Academy Feltham will achieve academic success and have the opportunity of attending university and succeeding in life. We believe that our pupils will work hard towards this goal if it is real to them. We will run an annual residential trip to a university to enable pupils to learn about life beyond school. We will also provide mentors for our pupils (including successful business leaders and professionals) and arrange internships for older pupils.
Whatever it takes – There are no shortcuts to success
Our aim of providing every single child with an amazing future requires hard work from teachers, pupils and parents. We instil high standards of effort and endeavour across our community by ensuring that:
- Our committed teachers do their utmost to achieve success, acting as role models and demonstrating the rewards that hard work can bring,
- We inspire our pupils to see the opportunities that learning will provide.
- We celebrate pupils’ hard work with exciting trips and events.
Values-driven – A strong, joyful culture
Pupils and staff commit to the school’s values and across the school, in lessons and extra-curricular activities, we work hard to align ourselves with the school’s values, which you can read more about here
