Mr Alex Burnham
Welcome to Newhouse Academy
I am very honoured to be the new Headteacher of Newhouse Academy and it is a privilege to serve the students and the community. We are entering a new and exciting time for Newhouse Academy. A new name and a new “High Expectations Agenda” to ensure both our students and staff are supported to deliver the highest standards. Our staff are encouraged to be imaginative and creative in the classroom in order to create motivational and inspiring lessons.
The Newhouse Academy, as part of the Hollingworth Learning Trust, is committed to providing opportunities for all students in a school where the values of aspiration, integrity and respect are integral, along with the determination to ensure all of our students achieve their desired destinations after Year 11.
Our new academy believes that all students regardless of starting points, should be given the opportunity to achieve their goals in education. Newhouse Academy looks to instil in all students a belief that intelligence is an area where we can all improve if we work hard and see our mistakes as part of that learning journey. This mindset is placed at the heart of teaching and learning and our curriculum enables our students to develop themselves both personally and academically. This approach also nurtures them to see challenges as opportunities to flourish.
These high expectations of both students and staff are our starting point for 2020. We hope as a community you will support the students and the academy to achieve our vision and values. Together we can rise to the challenge of supporting our students settling back into education. We have lots to do in order to ensure the gaps in learning are identified and interventions are put on place to support our students to aspire. We will not be complacent, and will be relentless in our pursuit of securing strong futures for the students of Newhouse Academy.
