Welcome Welcome to The Mill Academy where children are at the absolute centre of everything we do. We pride ourselves in providing motivational and exciting learning opportunities building self-esteem, confidence and thirst for lifelong learning for pupils, staff, parents and the wider community.

High Expectations for All We have high standards and expect the best from all our pupils and ourselves. We instill resilience and perseverance in the pupils at The Mill Academy and believe children have one chance at their education and we aim to give them every chance to fulfill their potentials.

The Curriculum At St. Mary’s Academy Trust we aim to provide all of our pupils with a broad and balanced education. We have developed a curriculum which is exciting, engaging and challenging, through which we hope children will grow a passion for education and become life-long learners. We aim to encourage pupils to ask questions and develop inquisitive minds By providing a broad and balanced curriculum for all our children, we are able to recognise and develop individual talents and interests. We see each child as unique and aim to harness and celebrate their talents throughout their time in the school.

Caring Community We provide children with a safe and secure environment where trust, value and respect underpin all our work with the children and with each other.

The Wider Community At the Mill Academy we are eager to continue developing links with the local and wider community .Links with the local council and local services provide our children with incentives to improve their community and understand roles within the area in which they live. Wider links through charities such as World Share provide the children with a greater understanding of world wide issues.

Parents as Partners Providing the very best education for the children at The Mill is created by ensuring positive and working links with parents and carers. Parents are kept regularly informed through regular correspondence a nd parent helpers are always welcomed in school.
