Improvement planning

The Academy Improvement Plan focuses on the strategies that are known to make a difference to the education and therefore the life chances of our scholars. We have three key priorities reflecting our three drivers; each one has a clear intended impact attached to it. Below is a summary of the 2017 – 20 Improvement Plan.
