All through - Same school for whole careers
With classes from Nursery to Sixth Form, Reach Academy Feltham offers pupils the opportunity to stay at the same school for their whole school career. Siblings are also guaranteed a place. 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 as our staff know pupils and their families well and provide continuity and support.
A small school - no pupil left behind
Our school is small, with only 60 pupils in each year from Nursery all the way to Year 11, and 75 pupils in each year in Sixth Form. 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 - 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 frequent trips to Universities to enable pupils to learn about life beyond school. We will also provide lectures for our pupils from successful business people or professionals, and arrange internships for older pupils.
Excellent teaching - excellence and enjoyment at our core
Named teachers support and provide a point of contact for our pupils’ families. We recognise and teach positive values such as respect and service to others. We consider parents to be our most important partners. Our teachers are exceptional academics and carers and will work tirelessly for your child.
Clear expectations - 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.
