Welcome Message - Our Ethos and Values

Principal’s Welcome


I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Clayton Hall Academy. Our vision is to be the school of choice for our local community by:

  • Providing a Gold standard education for all our students  
  • Delivering an aspirational curriculum leading to academic success  
  • Taking a tailored approach to support individual needs   
  • Ensuring students become resilient, independent and confident citizens  

We encourage positive attitudes and aim to provide an environment where students feel valued, challenged and secure, which in turn, allows them to reach their full potential. 

A gold standard education can only be achieved by working in partnership with parents, carers, and the wider community. We are great believers in the proverb ‘It takes a whole village to raise a child’ and work closely with every family. We welcome collaboration and regularly seek the opinions of the community we serve about what we do well and where we can improve. 

Clayton Hall offers a wealth of sporting and cultural opportunities to enrich the lives of young people, alongside dedicated staff and excellent pastoral care. 

Opportunities at Clayton Hall Academy have never been greater. The challenge of preparing young people for adulthood has never been more demanding or exciting. Together we can ensure each student leaves us as an educated, articulate, young adult prepared for the journey ahead.
